The first recorded case of a new type of coronavirus came from a market in the Chinese city of Wuhan.
The first infected person was a saleswoman from this market and not an accountant who had no connection with the market, as originally expected. That’s according to an American study published in a scientific journal Science, Reuters reported.
The case of the accountant, who was thought to be the first person infected with the covid, significantly contributed to speculation that the coronavirus escaped from a laboratory in Wuhan.Read also Anticovide soup? It was “Navariliated” by Venezuelan scientists
However, the origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus is still ambiguous, which is one of the reasons for the tension between China and the United States.
However, according to a new study, the first infected person was not mentioned as an accountant. He reported that his first symptoms of COVID-19 appeared on December 16, a few days later than originally expected. The confusion over the time of the first symptoms appeared in the accountant caused a dental problem, which appeared on December 8.Read also EMA is considering a new anti-covid drug based on monoclonal antibodies
“His symptoms did not appear until several cases on the market in Wuhan. Which means that the first known case (coronavirus infection) was a seafood saleswoman who broke out on December 11, “said Michael Worobey, a study professor at the University of Arizona in the United States.
According to Worobey, the first known symptomatic cases of covid are associated with the market in Wuchan, especially in its western part, where cages and teddy bears are kept in cages. These findings can be considered as evidence that the coronavirus pandemic has spread from this market, Reuters writes.Read also The Lancet: The Indian Covaxin vaccine is “highly effective” against covid
A study conducted earlier this year by China in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) ruled out a theory of coronavirus leakage from the laboratory, stating that the SARS-CoV-2 virus was likely to be transmitted to humans from bats via another animal. However, according to this study, further research was needed.
However, last month, the WHO proposed members of a new team of experts to re-examine the origins of the coronavirus, Reuters said.
