Mystery Disease in India

Could it reach here? - A rural town in India is battling a baffling disease, which started small but has now spread to 350 people, killing 160 of them. 15 to 20 people are dying every day. These days, diseases can spread like wildfire, due to plane travel, so who knows where it will turn up next?
