J.P. Rosenbaum Diagnosed With Rare Autoimmune Disorder

Bachelorette alum J.P. Rosenbaum has been diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome.

The 42-year-old reality TV star and his wife, Ashley Hebert, shared the news about his shocking diagnosis on social media on Sunday.

“JP was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome yesterday,” Ashley posted alongside a photo of her husband lying in a hospital bed. “He is in treatment and doing well. It may be a long road to full recovery, but we are so grateful to everyone that has helped us get to a speedy diagnosis and treatment.”

J.P. also took to his Instagram Stories to share that the experience has been “very surreal and humbling and crazy, rare.”

“Things you do every day, like picking up this phone, or buttoning buttons, tying shoelaces, putting on deodorant, just can’t do it,” he said in a video describing the rare autoimmune disorder, which according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, causes a person’s own immune system to damage its nerves, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis.

“Picking up my kids, can’t do it. Wiping your a**, maybe TMI, but might have Ashley assist on the next one,” he added.

J.P. also shared that he’ll be spending the next few days in the hospital so doctors can monitor if his symptoms have plateaued, followed by “lots of physical therapy.”

The Bachelor Nation couple met on season 7 of The Bachelorette and tied the knot in December 2012 in a beautiful ceremony officiated by Chris Harrison.

The parents of two recently celebrated their 7th wedding anniversary. Earlier this week, J.P. marked the occasion by sharing a heartwarming Instagram post to his lady love.

“7 years down, probably about 3-4 more to go. Happy anniversary to the woman responsible for all the love and happiness in this picture (and basically all my pictures for the last 7 years),” he captioned a photo of their family of four.

The lovebirds, who are one of the rare couples from the franchise that are still going strong, opened up to ET in October about if TheBachelor should still end with a proposal.

“I think you have to do what feels right,” said J.P., who appeared on season seven of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars with Ashley. “Like for us, it felt right. Well, at the time it felt right. Looking back, like, what the hell was I thinking proposing after two months? But you gotta do what feels right. I mean, no one forces you …read more

Nipah Virus: Global Health Officials Warn Of Emerging Threat – Myhealthyclick.com

Global public health officials and infectious disease specialists said that the deadly Nipah virus has already caused a stir across South and South East Asia, warning people of an emerging threat. They said the virus has “serious epidemic potential.”

Identified in 1999 in Singapore and Malaysia, the Nipah virus spread thousands of miles to India and Bangladesh, with a mortality rate ranging from 40 to 90 percent. Yet, there is no drug or vaccine against it.

CEO of Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) Richard Hatchett said, “Twenty years have passed since its discovery, but the world is still not adequately equipped to tackle the global health threat posed by Nipah virus.”

Founded in 2017, the CEPI is a “public-private coalition that aims to derail epidemics by speeding up the development of vaccines.”

The CEPI will be leading a two-day Nipah conference along with the Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore this week.

The first disease target of the CEPI is the Nipah virus, which is highly contagious and can be transmitted from person to person, or through contaminated food. The virus was found to be carried by certain types of bats and pigs.

The virus had spread to Bangladesh within two years of its discovery, causing several outbreaks. The virus outbreak in Kerala, India, killed 17 people in 2018.

Hatchett said, “Outbreaks of Nipah virus have so far been confined to South and Southeast Asia, but the virus has serious epidemic potential because Pteropus fruit bats that carry the virus are found throughout the tropics and sub-tropics, which are home to more than two billion people.”

Wang Linfa from the Duke-NUS Medical School said, “There are currently no specific drugs or vaccines for Nipah virus infection, even though the World Health Organization has identified (it) as a priority disease.” The CDC says, “Infection with Nipah virus is associated with encephalitis (inflammation of the brain). After exposure and an incubation period of 5 to 14 days, illness presents with 3-14 days of fever and headache, followed by drowsiness, disorientation and mental confusion.”
