ST. PETERS, Missouri (INTELLIHUB) — 19-year-old Zach Smith, and mother, Rhonda Smith, 48, both mysteriously died just four days apart after contracting what a family member said the two described as a “strand […] from Africa”.
Zach Smith was checked into the St. Joseph’s Medical Center with “flu-like symptoms” or what was thought by doctors, at the time, to have been “pneumonia”.
His mother Rhonda checked in to the hospital 4 days later than Zach with what she described as a side ache.
Both of the patients conditions deteriorated rapidly.
Both were reported to have had “severe respiratory problems” leading to heart failure and death.
Medical officials are perplexed and are currently looking into the matter, seeking more answers.
People in the area are rattled as a new superbug or potentially Ebola loom.
It is not yet known if the two infected anyone else around them, including medical staff.

A “mysterious” disease that kills patients within 24 hours has claimed at least 17 lives in a southeastern Nigerian town, the government said.
“Seventeen people have died of the mysterious disease since it broke out early this week in Ode-Irele town,” the government spokesman for Ondo state, Kayode Akinmade, told AFP news agency on Saturday.
The disease, whose symptoms include headache, weight loss, blurred vision and loss of consciousness, killed the victims within 24 hours of their falling ill, he said.
Laboratory tests have so far ruled out Ebola or any other virus, Akinmade added.
A respiratory virus is sending hundreds of children to hospitals in Missouri and possibly throughout the Midwest and beyond, officials say.
The virus causes symptoms like a cold, except worse, and is prompting up to 30 children a day to seek care at one Kansas City hospital, where about 15% of the youngsters were placed in intensive care, officials said.
In a sign of a possible regional outbreak, Colorado, Illinois and Ohio are reporting cases with symptoms similar to the same virus and are awaiting testing results, according to officials and CNN affiliates in those states.

“Comets are vile stars. Every time they appear in the south, they wipe out the old and establish the new. Fish grow sick, crops fail, Emperors and common people die, and men go to war. The people hate life and don’t even want to speak of it.” -Li Ch’un Feng, Director, Chinese Imperial Astronomical Bureau, 648, A.D.
In 2007, a meteorite fell in Puno, Southeastern Perú. José Macharé – scientist of the Geologic, Mining and Metallurgic Institute in Perú – said that the space rock fell near a muddy area by Lake Titicaca, making the water boil for around ten minutes, and mixing with the soil and emanating a gray cloud, the components of which remain unknown. Having discarded radioactive poisons, this toxic cloud is said to have caused headaches and respiratory problems in at least 200 persons from a population of 1500 inhabitants. Other than this event, how often do we hear about people getting sick due to a rock coming from space? How about birds, fish or other animals? Ancient astrologers cite comets as ill omens of death and famine, but are there any other causes other than the ones due to physical/mechanical consequences of comet impact devastation in our fragile environment of which we should be aware?
