Two Children Die From Mystery Disease in Jordan

Two children have died in a refugee camp from a water born illness. It is still unknown what exactly this disease is but Jordan has requested for the WHO and for their government to investigate. There is no word on if the parents of the children are sick. As of right now there is not an epidemic but there is concern for the refugees. The US is working on a $300 million aid package that would help with water purification and cures for polio and whooping cough. This aid package would benefit both Jordan and Lebanon.
