Mysterious Magic Mayhem
Over the last five days, St. Mungo's has received fifteen cases of witches of all ages showing signs of a lack of magic. They are unable to perform the simplest of spells, but are still capable of working with Potions. All individuals noted that previous to the complete lack of magic, any casted spells tended to go slightly haywire. No cause is yet known as Dr. Rajeev Conklegood, head healer at St. Mungo's explains: "At first, when it was just one or two cases, we thought it must be stress related. However, fifteen in such a short period of time lead us to believe that it's not just an individual phenomenon. Unfortunately, we are still unsure at this time, what is, in fact, the real cause. All tests cast on those affected come back normal aside from those related to magical activity."
Apparently, when the count of affected persons reached three on Monday, the Ministry was notified of a potential problem, but placed an order against publicizing it due to being unsure if it was just coincidence or something worse.
Anyone experiencing strange symptoms should go see a Healer immediately. It is unclear whether the problem is limited to just witches, or if wizards may be affected as well.
