Dr. Donald Lightner Confirms EMS in Mexico


Matthew Briggs ( Dr. Donald Lightner has confirmed EMS/AHPNS in Mexico—bad news all round—especially for Mexico, but it also puts the rest of Latin America at higher risk.  Apparently the strain found in Mexico was just like the Asian strain, but with two phages affecting the Vibrio parahaemolyticus instead of one.
