A new strain of cartoon fish is causing a major health scare in some people, and they’re spreading like wildfire.
In a report on Monday, the CDC reported that it has received reports of the strain of the fish in the United States, as well as in other countries.
The strain is known as the cartoon fish.
The new strain has been identified as a strain that can survive temperatures up to minus 100 degrees Celsius.
“We have been working with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to determine whether or not this new strain is causing any significant health risks,” said Dr. Michael Shorrock, a CDC epidemiologist.
“We do not have any data to support this hypothesis.”
Shorrock says the new strain can survive at temperatures of minus 50 degrees Celsius, which is warmer than the freezing point of water at minus 70 degrees Celsius — the freezing-point for most other species of fish.
He said the new variant can survive up to a day in water with a pH of 6.5.
The CDC said that this new variant is not a new strain and has been around for at least 20 years.
It has also been linked to other other diseases like listeriosis, a bacteria that can be transmitted through contaminated water.
The CDC said this new variation was also not related to the current outbreak.
“We are not aware of any cases that have been confirmed in the U.S.,” Shorrocks said.
“It is not known whether the strain that is circulating in the US is an isolated case or is an existing case.
We will continue to monitor the spread of this new infection.”
Shirrock added that the CDC has no idea when or how this new cartoon fish was first discovered.
Shorroks statement said that although there is no definitive evidence to show that the new fish is caused by the new cartoon, the new virus could spread by other means.
“Because the cartoon is unique, it’s hard to determine what it’s causing,” Shorros said.
“There are some indications that the strain has become resistant to other drugs,” Shors statement said.
The new strain appears to have mutated into a different type of cartoon that can also survive temperatures of up to -80 degrees Celsius and can thrive in cold water.
“The current strain can tolerate freezing temperatures of -40 degrees Celsius,” Shoras statement said, adding that this strain is not related in any way to the new pandemic strain.
“However, it is possible that the virus could also be causing the changes in temperature that are observed in the virus, such as the growth of more of the virus cells,” Shoros statement said to CNN.
“It’s not clear whether this new type of strain is the same or a different strain,” Shoreys statement added.
Shorromos statement said there is “no clear evidence that the disease is transmitted from fish to people.”
It was unclear how long the new infection had spread, although Shorron said that it had been detected in the aquarium industry for more than a decade.
The disease has been linked in other states to fish and the aquarium business.
In addition to Shorror, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is also looking into the case.
