This makes no sense. They are saying this is a new strain that has no name - yet in the next sentence state to go get vaccinated. This is the kind of bullshit propaganda that pisses me off.
A new deadly strain of meningitis is spreading in New York City that has alarmed public health officials. The strain, which is new and hasn’t been named yet, has so far infected 22 people, all men, and 7 people have already died. This means that the disease kills one in three people making it more deadly than typical strains.
New York City public health officials are rushing to get the word out on this new strain and have advised men to get vaccinated against meningitis
The strain can be easily treated with the vaccine however
