The man who’s helped make the flu epidemic a reality in New York City was diagnosed with a new case of the dreaded pneumonic plague.
The man, a physician, was treated at a Manhattan hospital for two weeks, after doctors were told he had a pneumonic case, a medical source told The Sport Book.
The source said the patient’s doctor was so worried that he told his colleagues about the unusual flu-like symptoms he was experiencing that they put him on a medication called fluoxetine.
Pneumonic plague is a severe respiratory disease that affects up to 1 million people worldwide each year.
It usually affects adults over the age of 65.
The medical source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the patient is under quarantine, said the physician had been in contact with a medical professional in China, who confirmed he had the pneumonic illness.
The doctor had no symptoms, but his condition was deteriorating, the source said.
The patient was admitted to a hospital in Queens on Monday, and his condition has been upgraded to critical, the medical source said, noting that the patient has not been tested for the pneumons.
The New York Post first reported the news.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed the first case of pneumonic pneumonic disease in New Yorkers in its history.
The case, the first in the city, was found in a person in the Bronx who tested positive for the illness, said Anthony Fauci, a spokesman for the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
Fauci said the CDC is monitoring the situation and will release further information as it becomes available.
The first pneumonic pandemic in New Yorker history has been caused by the coronavirus, the world’s most deadly virus.
The disease, which causes flu-type symptoms, is particularly deadly because it can strike as early as 6:30 a.m. or earlier.
It is not contagious, and it can be treated with antibiotics.
The pandemic has affected millions of people across the country.
The number of confirmed cases in New Jersey has jumped nearly 50 percent, and in the New York area, there have been 2,800 new cases.
