Mar 28, 2020 16:53 IST

A shrimp seller at the wet market in the Chinese city of Wuhan may be the first person to have tested positive for the disease, a media report said on Saturday. The report by the London-based Metro newspaper said that 57-year-old woman, named by the Wall Street Journal as Wei Guixian, was selling shrimp at the Huanan Seafood Market when she developed what she thought was a cold last December. Chinese digital news outlet, The Paper has said that she may be patient zero'. Wei was told by doctors her illness was "ruthless" and other workers at the market had come to the Wuhan Union Hospital with the same symptoms.
