The BBC reported that a patient in his 70’s, recovering from a stroke at home, was patient “No. Zero,” or the first patient who the novel coronavirus infected in Wuhan.
He had symptoms on December 1, 2019, a week before the December 8 case that Wuhan reported in the past. He never went to the seafood market, which the Chinese government blamed as the origin of the virus.
