(ONE AMERICA NEWS) A shrimp vendor at a market in Wuhan, China has been identified as the possible patient zero of COVID-19. Friday reports revealed a 57-year-old woman was the first person on record to be diagnosed with the coronavirus.
The woman has said she developed symptoms on December 10th while at a seafood market in Wuhan, which was the first location to report a cluster of cases. Thinking she had the flu, the woman picked up treatment at a clinic and went back to work. She may have spread the coronavirus to others from there.
After her infection became much worse a week later, she went to a larger hospital. She was told others had come in with the same “ruthless” bug.
