On December 6th in Eluru, a city in the State of Andhra Pradesh, southeastern India, 300  people were hospitalized due to an undefined illness, including one dead. Patients have reported having seizures, loss of consciousness, and nauseousness. They have all tested negative for Corona, despite India having the second highest number of Covid cases in the world, and Andhra Pradesh being one of the worst infected states in India. The health department of Andhra Pradesh said that it is not a viral infection, and they are running many more tests to figure out what the cause of this mass hospitalization is.
