We all know Covid-19 or as we call it ‘the corona virus’ started spreading across the globe in late 2019. Some even claim to be aware of its spread as early as October 2019.
Wuhan, China was the first city to come into contact of this virus in December 2019 and many people got affected. Early visuals can be seen of people feeling dizzy and collapsing on the streets of Wuhan City. It’s all over internet.
Many in Wuhan and around the world believe as the evidence suggests that Covid19 exposure occured in a seafood market in Wuhan. The market was then closed on 1st January 2020.
On January 4 2020 WHO announced a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, mainland China with no deaths. On January 11th, China announced its first death of a 61 year old man.
