Researchers especially in China continue to try to uncover how and from where the covid-19 or corona virus infects humans, the corona virus has become a global pandemic today. What the researchers did was to track down the person who was first infected with the corona virus, to get data on where the virus actually originated and how it could infect humans.
At first scientists suspected that the corona virus originated from bat animals which then spread it to other animals and subsequently transmitted humanity. Now the corona virus has spread without the intervention of animals anymore but spread from one person to another.
That is why researchers are trying to trace the case that first occurred so they can identify what animals are used as hosts by the corona virus to hide. Besides that researchers must also find out and understand how the virus spreads and look for undocumented cases that contribute to the transmission of the virus, all of which will greatly help researchers in terms of increasing their understanding of the threat of the virus.
Based on information obtained by the South Morning China Post, that the first case of the corona virus has been found or tracked. The information goes on to say that the first person infected with the corona virus came from or lived in China’s 55-year-old Hubei Province.
According to data obtained that the case occurred on November 17, 2019, one month earlier than what was recorded by doctors in the city of Wuhan. As is well known that the city of Wuhan is the first place the corona virus was detected. After the incident on 17 November 2019, it was discovered that there were one to five new cases reported every day.
The total number of infected people reached 27 people on December 15, 2019. After that the number of cases increased steadily every day until it reached 60 cases on December 20, 2019. Doctors in China at the end of December 2019 just realized that they were being confronted by a new disease.
Dr. Zhang Jixian, from the Chinese and Western Integrated Medicine Hospital in Hubei Province, gave information to the Chinese Health Authority that a disease caused by covid-19 or a new corona virus had infected more than 180 people.
Although the first case was identified, which occurred on November 17, 2019, but there are still doubts among experts, was the first person found was really the first person infected by the corona virus?
Meanwhile experts from all over the world endlessly continue to study and research about this new corona virus. They conduct tests on vaccines that are expected to be used to treat patients who have been infected by the corona virus or to prevent a person from getting an attack from a new corona virus. They also provide care for people who have been infected by the corona virus in the hope that this global pandemic can pass quickly.
