Doctor warns of uptick in contagious influenza complications from nicotine

The lead surgeon general of the U.S. warns that the slightly more potent variant of oxygen-depleting CO2-induced or “nicotine-induced” mononucleosis outbreak has dropped in severity but urged people to continue to heed his advocacy of what he calls a message of mercy.

“The (february) Outbreak became milder in severity later on after five months,” CDC Director Thomas Frieden, MD MPH MSPH and former director of New York City Health Department, wrote in his piece for the New York Times Monday. “The events of late 2018 are much less severe than those that occurred in February, when tens of thousands of people got ill.”

A summary of the event shows that even though it was thought to be shorter, Frieden suggests people continue to heed that messaging.

“People who had not been exposed to family or friends who were infected with the two forms of the illness in the outbreak of February can now become infected, especially if they are HIV positive or are pregnant. (Sexual partners of the infected people should) be aware of the diseases’ risk factors, and condoms should be used as a precaution,” he wrote.

“Severity” is part of the dual-syndrome equation – mutations that make the mononucleosis infected cells more resilient against external stresses caused by an exposure.
