No solution to the mysterious ceres disease outbreak
By MICHAEL BAGLEYFor the first time in a century, a small cluster of the rare, aggressive and deadly ceres bacteria has been detected in New York City, with at least a half-dozen other sites reporting positive tests.
The bacteria is thought to be related to the recent outbreak of bubonic plague, and it has been causing the city’s respiratory problems since last week.
The city has been under lockdown since Friday night, when the bacteria was discovered in New Haven, Conn.
But the number of people affected is unknown and is now estimated at between 5,000 and 6,000, with more than 500 cases.
A handful of people have died, including a New Haven man who was rushed to a hospital in critical condition and two New York State Police officers who were treated for flu-like symptoms, according to CBS New York.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the New York Department of Health say that there are no known cases of the bubonic form of the disease in the United States.
The CDC said that tests taken from the people tested for the bacteria have confirmed it to be the same strain of the bacteria that has been linked to bubonic plagues in China and India.
The ceres strain is the first to be isolated in New England since last year, and has caused severe respiratory problems for thousands of people since then, including those with weakened immune systems.
The virus causes pneumonia and other symptoms of the coronavirus, but it can cause a host of other illnesses.
It is also not uncommon to find cases of people with pneumonia or other respiratory illnesses, and those have been linked in some cases to the virus.
The CDC says it is not certain if any of the people with fevers and respiratory problems in New Jersey are infected with the bubonaut bacteria.
The disease is thought likely to have been introduced into New York’s subway system, the PATH, in recent years.
