A deadly parasite called Strongyloides is spreading in the major country of America.
There have been confirmed reports of a pregnant woman and her two-year-old child being infected with a deadly parasite called Strongyloides.
According to The Guardian, about 16 residents of Rancho Vista were informed they were infected with the parasite when they gave blood and stool samples to a well-known university researching the spread of the parasites.
Billions of people are likely to be infected worldwide, although infections found in areas of U.S. states such as Appalachia and Los Angeles County include.
These deadly parasites are transmitted through the soil in the body, and those who have low immune systems can cause death.
