Guests fall ill at AMA meeting


According to this article, up to 150 people fell ill at a fundraiser held while people were at the Drake Hotel attending an American Medical Association meeting. Current theory is that a virus is to blame.

Update: I saw an official communique today (Feb. 9) that says it was a norovirus passed by both food and person to person. The outbreak was contained, the hotel thoroughly scrubbed and disinfected, and no new cases have been found.
