Weeks after he was hospitalized with what his doctors assumed was the coronavirus, NBC News contributor and virologist Dr. Joseph Fair, Ph.D., M.P.H., said his recent antibody test has come back negative.
He said his earlier illness "remains an undiagnosed mystery" in a tweet on Tuesday.
I was severely ill for 2 weeks, 4 days of it in critical condition, resulting in pneumonia, diffuse lung injury & 18lbs of weight loss. My path forward is a 2nd AB test, & follow-up with a pulmonologist & tropical medicine specialist in an effort to diagnose what made me so ill.

authorities in Kazakhstan denied such an outbreak, saying that "this information does not correspond to reality," CNN reported. A statement from Kazakhstan's health ministry said that there were "viral pneumonias of unspecified etiology" in the country.

Health institutions in the central Asian country were working on identifying the reasons behind the sudden surge in cases.
Kazakhstan, however, dismissed the claim by China's embassy as "fake news."
"The information published by some Chinese media regarding a new kind of pneumonia in Kazakhstan is incorrect," the ministry said.

If its real, and not a different strain of Covid19, then either its one hell of a coincidence, or someone somewhere is playing with bio-warfare
