((The latest case of inhalation anthrax is bringing health officials to the tiny town of Oxford, Connecticut. A 94-year-old woman who lived there mysteriously contracted the disease and died Wednesday morning. Dr. Lydia Barakat - Infectious Disease Specialist The patient had symptoms for 2 days by the time she came to the hospital, by the time she came here, she got treatment within hours. Health officials say they have no idea how Ottillie Lundgren got the disease. She lived in a home by herself in a rural community - and because of her age - had little contact with the outside world. Lundgren arrived at the hospital on Friday and even though she was showing signs of pneumonia, her doctors say they held off on giving her antibiotics immediately.
Premature treatment could hinder diagnostic possibilities in terms of elucidating the cause of her fever so we dont routinely treat everyone with a fever with antibiotics. Unfortunately, Lundgren was never able to help investigators pinpoint the source of her disease. So, they're starting where they have before - searching for any signs of anthrax at two nearby postal facilities. Connecticut Governor John Rowland is encouraging the 15-hundred postal employees who work there to start taking antibiotics - and urging Connecticut residents to be alert. Gov. John G. Rowland - Connecticut If you have flu-like pneumonia symptoms, consult your personal physician or go to the hospital. This latest case of anthrax is the most mysterious one so far and could bring new fears about future bio-terrorism attacks. Gretchen Carlson, CBS News, New York.))
