>>Isn't the safer conclusion a case of bad journalism?

I believe the original story had some comments from local leaders (whoever they are) expressing concern that plague-ridden jihadists would seek medical care in their villages, thus spreading the blight. The story may have originated in a collation of such comments. If it was pure disinformation, one hopes it caused would-be conspirators many sleepless nights before being exposed by the Health and Tourism Ministry.
