美国一市长称去年11月已感染新冠病毒

据新华社5日报道,美国新泽西州埃塞克斯县贝尔维尔市市长迈克尔·梅尔哈姆日前表示,他的新冠病毒抗体检测结果呈阳性,他相信自己是去年11月感染新冠病毒的。

Belleville Mayor Michael Melham said he has tested positive for coronavirus antibodies, adding that he believes he was sick with the virus in November.

美国北泽西网站报道,梅尔哈姆在一份新闻稿中说,他去年11月下旬到大西洋城参加市长联盟会议返回后发病,症状包括发冷、出现幻觉和体温急剧上升,“感觉就像我是一个正在戒除毒瘾的人……从未觉得我会病得这么厉害”。
 
Melham said he was sick toward the end of November and suffered from chills, hallucinations and a "skyrocketing temperature" after he left the League of Municipalities Conference in Atlantic City. "It felt as if I was an addict going through withdrawal," Melham said in a press release. "I didn’t know what was happening to me. I never felt that I could be so sick."



梅尔哈姆说,当时医生诊断他得了流感。经过休息和补液后,他的身体状况好转。梅尔哈姆没有接受流感测试,也没有出国旅行史。梅尔哈姆说,这是他成年以后病得最重的一次。

The doctor told Melham he had the flu and that he would get better after rest and fluids, the release said. He did not take a flu test and said he did not travel overseas. Melham said it was the sickest he had ever been in his adult life.

4月下旬,他进行了新冠病毒抗体检测,4月29日得知检测结果呈阳性。他认为自己可能属于早期未被发现的新冠病毒感染病例,不太可能是后来被感染的无症状者。

据新华社报道,毗邻纽约的新泽西州是美国疫情第二严重的州。新泽西州3月4日报告首例新冠确诊病例。

另据美国疾控中心估计,约四分之一新冠病毒感染者从未出现症状。

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 25% of people infected with the coronavirus never develop symptoms.

据央视新闻报道,梅尔哈姆的事件令许多人感到吃惊,因为美国今年1月下旬才报道首例新冠肺炎确诊病例,比梅尔哈姆提到的感染日期,晚了两个多月。也有不同声音认为,梅尔哈姆只凭自己有新冠病毒抗体,就认为自己去年11月的症状就是新冠肺炎,缺乏更科学的验证。

据新华社报道,美国公共卫生专家认为,新冠病毒可能今年头两个月已在美国悄然传播,但当时检测量很少,并且检测条件严苛。
