Health officials have issued an alert for people who may have been exposed to a virus-laden aerosol produced by neutrogenas, or non-human primates, and recommend wearing a mask to prevent inhaling particles from a contaminant in body oils.
“If you’ve been exposed, you may want to use a mask,” said Dr. Steven Biederman, a professor of dermatology at the University of Pennsylvania.
“I’ve seen cases of people who had been exposed for years and never used a mask.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the most common types of neutrogene-producing viruses in the U.S. are SARS-CoV-2, SARS–CoV, coronavirus, and SARS:H7N9.
That means there are four known cases in the United States that have been traced to neutrogens, including two who tested positive for the virus-producing virus, according to the CDC.
Neutrogenoses are the immune system’s own bodies of cells that are capable of destroying the viruses.
They include the bodies of primates, birds, fish, and other animals.
“In this case, we have to take into consideration that there’s a very high level of transmission, and we also have to be aware that the virus may have mutated in the people,” said Biederm.
“So we’ve got to make sure that we’re getting the right doses and we’re using the right protective measures.”
Neutrophil cells are one of the major types of immune cells in the body.
Biedercun told The Associated Press he believes the person may have inhaled a neutrophilic aerosol that could have been contaminated with SARS.
“I think that this is a potential exposure that needs to be investigated and it’s going to be hard to rule out a very small number of exposures that have occurred in the past,” he said.
Biederm said the risk of exposure to the virus is “very low.”
“It’s not like you could get sick from a nosebleed,” he added.
“It’s very, very low.”
In addition to the risk posed by inhaling the aerosol, there is a risk of developing the virus in the first place, Biederal said.
“There are still many people in this country that haven’t developed the virus,” he told The AP.
“There’s still people who don’t have a history of exposure.
It’s not just the virus that’s causing this problem, it’s a lack of education and education isn’t always followed up with tests.”
Biederal told The Philadelphia Inquirer that the first sign of a virus exposure is usually a rash that lasts several days.
He said it is important to check your skin regularly and to make an appointment to get tested.
“We’re going to get this fixed in time, and the goal is to get all the data out,” he concluded.
