Doctors in Canada have recently received cases of patients with symptoms similar to those of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a rare and dangerous disease that affects the brain. But after careful examination and examination of the cases, the doctors’ confusion increases.

About two years ago, Roger Ellis suddenly collapsed and spased on his 40th wedding day.

Ellis was in his early 60s, and was born and raised in rural New Brunswick, on the Acadian Peninsula. He was in good health until last June and is enjoying his retirement after working as a mechanic.

His son, Steve Ellis, says his father’s health has been deteriorating very quickly since that day.
