Resources for Members of the News Media
An E-mail message currently circulating widely on the Internet describes something called the Klingerman virus. This virus supposedly has infected people who have opened packages mailed to them containing a gift from the Klingerman Foundation. According to a page posted on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention web site, this message is false and should not be forwarded. [www.cdc.gov/ncidod/kingerman_hoax.htm]
Yale-New Haven Hospital's name became attached to this message by mistake. Unfortunately, the hospital's name may have given the hoax message more credibility than it deserves.
If you have received this hoax E-mail, please do not forward it to others and refer those who have received it to the CDC page above.
Selected releases to the news media grouped by year from 1995.
