A California doctor treating coronavirus patients has urged officials to close down local schools immediately after revealing that three men near the Los Angeles celebrity suburb of Calabasas are ‘very ill’ after contracting the virus on an Italian ski trip.

Dr Sam Fink, who is a primary care physician treating coronavirus patients in Tarzana – the Los Angeles suburb just 10 miles from Kim Kardashian’s Calabasas home, has warned that the disease is unlike anything he has ever seen.

The three men were among a group of friends who have all tested positive for coronavirus following a trip to an exclusive ski resort in Italy last month. Dr Frink said one of his patients is being treated at the Tarzana Medical Center, the second is being treated at another facility and that he is friends with a third patient.

‘I have practiced for over 30 years, and have seen it all, or so I thought. Nothing has worried me like this,’ he wrote on Facebook on Sunday, adding that he has been shocked to see the impact of the fast-spreading virus.

‘Essentially, 14 men went on a ski trip to Northern Italy. All have become ill, and all 14 have tested positive for coronavirus. Of the 14, four needed to be hospitalized, and of the four patients, three are very ill as I write this. One had a significant pre-existing medical condition. The other three did not, and are relatively young.’

The three men traveled back to the United States on February 27 after visiting Cortina d’Ampezzo in Northern Italy’s Dolomite Mountains.

The Los Angeles County Health Department has confirmed eight cases of coronavirus among a group of travelers who recently returned from northern Italy. Sources tell DailyMail.com that the other members of the group, who reside elsewhere in the US and abroad, have also fallen ill since returning home.

‘The news out of Northern Italy today is not good,’ Dr Fink said as he urged the public to take measures beyond vigorous hand washing and hand sanitizing.

He also urged schools to close and locals to avoid big groups.
