    Two new cases of the rare but potentially deadly virus infection Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) have been detected, according to the lab results from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

    A 5-year-old girl from southwestern Middlesex County and a woman in her 60s from eastern Middlesex County have been diagnosed with EEE, officials said Friday.

    The scary thing is some people become infected with the EEE virus, but show no symptoms, according to the CDC. Curious how the brain can experience inflammation (encephalitis) and the person show no symptoms????
