AMERICAN couple Michelle and David Paul were unlikely to have died from Hepatitis A, says the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“It is unlikely that the couple you referenced in your email died from hepatitis A,” a response from CDC’s Traveler’s Health to The Fiji Times stated.

CDC is currently working in partnership with the Ministry of Health and Medical Services, the World Health Organization (WHO), WHO’s partners Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine and Collaborating Centre, the Victorian Infectious Diseases Reference Laboratory, the Fiji Police Force’s forensic departments and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to investigate the mystery illness that led to the death of the Texas couple while holidaying in the country in May.
