Revealed, First COVID Case Appears in China Two Months Before Wuhan


SHANGHAI – The COVID-19 virus is suspected to have started to spread in China in early October 2019, two months before the first cases were identified in the central city of Wuhan.

Researchers from the UK’s University of Kent used methods from conservation science to estimate that SARS-CoV-2 first appeared from early October to mid-November 2019.

The study was published in the journal PLOS Pathogens. “The most likely date for the emergence of the virus is November 17, 2019, and it may have spread globally in January 2020,” the study estimates.
