Wuhan virus: Jialat, if this true

In China on 28/02/2020 at 4:00 am

The first case could have on 1 December, not 31 December 2019.

The official Chinese narrative is that the first coronavirus case was on 31 December last yr and many of the first cases of the pneumonia-like infection were immediately connected to a seafood and animal market in Wuhan, in the Hubei province.

But this narrative could be wrong by 30 days. The first case could have occurred on 1 December:

[A} study, by Chinese researchers published in the Lancet medical journal, claimed the first person to be diagnosed with Covid-19, was on 1 December 2019 (a lot of earlier) and that person had “no contact” with the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market.

Wu Wenjuan, a senior doctor at Wuhan’s Jinyintan Hospital and one of the authors of the study, told the BBC Chinese Service that the patient was an elderly man who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease.

“He (the patient) lived four or five buses from the seafood market, and because he was sick he basically didn’t go out,” Wu Wenjuan said.

She also said that three other people developed symptoms in the following days – two of whom had no exposure to Huanan either.

However, the researchers also found that 27 people of a sample of 41 patients admitted to hospital in the early stages of the outbreak “had been exposed to the market”.

The hypothesis that the outbreak started at the market and could have been transmitted from a living animal to a human host before spreading human-to-human is still considered the most likely, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

  1. Huh?!?!? Looking at typical china opacity & the natural tendency for the many layers of bureaucracy to make things appear good to the top levels in Beijing …. I have no doubt that it started in Nov 2019. Taking into consideration the longish incubation period, as well as the “normal” flue-like symptoms during what is typical winter season in China where spikes of serious influenza & pneumonia is common.
