Coronavirus "Patient Zero" Speaks on How She Contracted COVID-19

A woman from Wuhan, China believed to be the first person to ever test positive for COVID-19 speaks out for the first time via the Wall Street Journal.

The COVID-19 “Patient Zero” has reportedly been identified as Wei Guixian, a 57-year-old shrimp vendor in the Huanan Market in Wuhan, China. She was among the first twenty-seven people to have ever tested positive for the virus, and is believed to be “patient zero.” which has claimed nearly 28,000 lives around the world so far, according to media reports. For the first time, she is speaking out about her own experience with coronavirus via the Wall Street Journal.

“I felt a bit tired, but not as tired as previous years. Every winter, I always suffer from the flu. So I thought it was the flu,” said Wei. She went to a local clinic where she received treatment for the flu before returning to work, effectively beginning the outbreak that has shut down the entire world. Her symptoms worsened before she decided to go to the hospital, where doctors could not figure out what was wrong. On December 16, she visited another hospital where it was determined that she was among many to have contracted the “ruthless” illness. Before finally being placed in quarantine, doctors determined that twenty-four of the twenty-seven cases they had seen came from the seafood market, also realizing that Wei was likely “patient zero.”

She believes that she came into contact with the virus via a shared toilet with wild meat sellers.The coronavirus ‘patient zero’, who made a full recovery in January after month-long treatment, believes the Chinese government could have checked the spread of the disease had it acted sooner.

The total number of deaths from the novel coronavirus stood at 27,989 on Saturday. Over 605,220 infections have been recorded in 183 countries.

According to official figures, Italy is the worst hit with 9,134 deaths, followed by Spain at 5,690 and China at 3,295.

The US has the highest number of infections with 104,837 cases. Other badly hit countries include, Iran, France and the UK — where Prime Minister Boris Johnson has tested positive for the disease.

When I say we, I’m talking about the streets and what we came from.”
