The first case of Coronavirus in the world is allegedly a 55-year-old man from Hubei province in China. That case was reported in November 17, 2019, according to the South Morning China Post.

Not more than one month earlier, doctors reported cases in Wuhan, China, which is in Hubei province, at the end of December 2019.

It was then believed the virus originated from things sold in wet market in the city. Surprisingly, some infected people had no connection to the market. That included one of the cases from December 1, 2019 of individual who had no link to that seafood market.
