  1. I’m intrigued but I also feel bad. I wonder if it could be someone who is just a carrier but doesn’t actually present symptoms

  2. I mean it could possibly be one Of the millions that fled Wuhan when they announced the quarantine days in advanced. Just a theory.

  3. He/she could be dead for all we know

  4. He’s going to be in so much trouble

  5. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.dailysabah.com/asia/2020/02/13/hunt-on-for-coronavirus-patient-zero-who-started-global-spread) reduced by 86%. (I’m a bot)

    > "We do feel uncomfortable obviously when we diagnose a patient with the illness and we can't work out where it came from … the containment activities are less effective," said Dale Fisher, chair of the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network coordinated by the World Health Organisation.

    > "Everyone assumes it was a delegate but it could have been a cleaner, it could have been a waiter," said Paul Tambyah, an infectious diseases expert at National University Singapore.

    > A notice posted by building management stated a coronavirus patient had entered the complex, while several young women could be overheard in a nearby elevator discussing whether it had been used by the infected person.

  6. That’s a diversion.

    “Patient Zero” wasn’t in Singapore.

    Patient Zero was in China on December 1st.

    >The symptom onset date of the first patient identified was Dec 1, 2019. None of his family members developed fever or any respiratory symptoms. No epidemiological link was found between the first patient and later cases.

  7. Patient Zero is probably some deceased Chinese soldier Guinea pig who escaped the military base in Wuhan.

  8. As if patient zero isnt dead and already accounted for , more distraction news

  9. More like ‘Scapegoat Hunt on….”

    i.e, as if it was one person…

  10. Isnt this the plotline of some movie …..?

    oh yeah World War Z !
