Paris, France (NP)
The number of victims of Marchal-Wilson cancer continues to grow, despite quarantine measures recently put into place across the European Union. Public health officials confirmed that cases have been identified in most EU nations, with the largest concentration found in Paris, France.
No official death toll has been released, but doctors from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia, estimate that between 1000 and 2000 people have died from the cancerous infection. The number of infected is thought to be in the tens of thousands.
Like the contagious canine cancer discovered in 2006, Marchal-Wilson can be transmitted from one organism to another, in this case through contact with bodily fluids (including blood and saliva).
Though research is ongoing, no treatment or vaccination has been discovered.
