With the information available in the media, the total count would be; 1 dead and 14 hospitalized or in isolation and at least one of these patients is in the ICU unresponsive to treatment.

Federal authorities are taking this very seriously and the USA-Mexico border surveillance are talking constantly to know if the disease may have an international impact.

In a few hours we will know the results.

[Atypical pneumonia is a pneumonia that does not respond to the usual
antibiotic treatment. It can be caused by bacteria, in particular
_Mycoplasma pneumoniae_, _Chlamydia pneumoniae_, _Legionella
pneumophila_ and _Bordatella pertussis_, or viruses, including
influenza virus and other respiratory pathogens.

The description of the illness and the circumstances surrounding this
incident are too ill-defined to suggest a possible etiology for these
4 cases, one with fatal outcome. No information is provided to
substantiate the diagnosis of atypical pneumonia or the involvement of
a viral pathogen or any other infectious agent. Further information is
requested.

Ciudad Juarez is in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. It can be located
