Government Launches Webpage For Mystery Illness


The New Brunswick government has launched a webpage with more information regarding a mystery neurological illness.

There are 47 cases under investigation and six people have died.

The website states since 2020, physicians have identified a number of individuals with an unusual combination of neurological symptoms, but a diagnosis has not yet been determined.

Most of the individuals under investigation were living in the southeastern and northeastern regions of New Brunswick, around the Acadian Peninsula and Moncton areas.

The cases range from 2013 to 2020 and have affected those between the ages of 18 and 85.

The webpage states the investigation team is exploring all potential causes including food, environmental and animal exposures.
