Necrotizing Fasciitis (NF) is a rare bacterial infection, which literally eats away at flesh. NF is a drug resistant bacteria, and it can eat away at a persons flesh at a rate of 1 inch per hour. Treatment is in the form of surgery, and a quarter of cases end in death.
Although rare, there have been a wave of cases across the south of the country in recent months. Now, one of the victims has died of the disease. Pastor Linda Snyder of the United Methodist Church in Sacramento, died after battling the infection for six months.
Another Christian woman, 24 year old Aimee Copeland, of Augusta Georgia has had both hands, her left foot, and her other leg amputated to try and halt the spread of the bacteria. Amiee was infected after she fell off a ripline over the Georgia River.
Aimee was the first case of NF in Georgia, most of the other victims have reported becoming infected after being cut in water. In another case a woman developed NF after giving birth to twins, in South Carolina. She has already undergone 11 four surgeries to try and control the spread of the infection. There are now 5 cases in Georgia and South Carolina in recent months, although the authorities say they are unrelated.
Interestingly the cases in Georgia have centred around the Centre of Disease Control.
Little is known about the NF or how to treat it. In the current spate of cases across the south, are we seeing a manifestation of the demonic that has been release throughout America’s waterways by occult groups, in particular by Tibetan Buddhist rituals?
