Disease affecting dolphins

USA Today reports that a serious disease has been affecting dolphins off the Atlantic coast of the United states.

It reports the death of at least 1,550 bottlenose dolphins in the region since July 2013. This is caused apparently by the morbillivirus, a measles-like virus that causes pneumonia, skin lesions and brain infections in dolphins.

Lets hope the outbreak is over soon.
