As an infectious diseases specialist for over 40 years I have never heard this shibbolith, and have read much on Chinese medicine. Absolutely no concrete evidence to support this.

In brief: No, you can eat it

I know of no reason why you can't eat seafood while you have an infection.
Make sure you complete the treatment prescribed by your physicians for the infection, and you should be fine.
