The number of reported cases of a rare skin infection tied to handling raw seafood continues to rise after initial reports of the outbreak surfaced last month.
Originally, 30 cases were reported, but now, the Department of Health suspects there are 66 people with the infection.
The rash is caused by bacteria, which enters the body through breaks in the skin.
Symptoms include red, tender bumps on the hands or arms and difficulty moving fingers.
All of the cases have all been linked to seafood markets in Chinatown, the Flushing section of Queens and the Sunset Park section of Brooklyn, but no specific markets have been targeted.
Anyone with symptoms is urged to consult a doctor and seek antibiotic treatment.
