Covid in Italy before Wuhan?
In the first paragraph:
This boy had not travelled out of the country before this time.
I have seen this story from many different generally respected news outlets.
I have heard from a top provincial nurse & a lab tech that many coronaviruses have always been around. These folks said that they suspected that their family had it in January before it was a "thing". Symptoms matched.
We had suspected that this virus may not really be new at all, just convenient. We may be wrong (its supposition only), but this story is an interesting new twist nevertheless.
