A video of a man collapsing on a New York City pavement while wearing a facemask has sparked concerns that it's related to COVID-19.
The 25-year-old reportedly fainted on Main Street on Tuesday.
NYPD were called to the Flushing neighbourhood at 1:28 pm after the incident occurred.
The video was posted to Twitter by Yang Zhanqing with the caption: "Flushing, New York, a guy walked and passed out today ... I don't know if it is related to the new coronavirus."
In the video, people are seen huddled around the man looking concerned. One person is kneeling down next to him while others watch from a distance.
The video has caused concerns among New Yorkers because it closely resembles videos showing coronavirus victims collapsing on the streets of China.
Social media users responded to the video with concern, with many hoping it had nothing to do with coronavirus.
"Let's hope this is not serious, I was in Flushing this morning doing an Insta Live while taking care of some business. I wore masks while on the 7 train from Manhattan to Flushing Queens and back, and while walking in Flushing," one person said.
"Could be a heart attack, drug overdose, asthma, aneurysm or anything besides a virus that is not rampant in the USA as of now," another said.
Others were concerned by the lack of help the man received.
"So..no CPR? No Narcan administered? No stopping and making sure he was breathing?" wrote one Twitter user.
"No one wants to assess the guy?" said another.
Currently, there are only two confirmed cases of coronavirus in New York.
The man, who was rushed to NewYork-Presbyterian Queen's hospital is expected to survive. But, no other information about his condition has been released.
