There was a misdiagnosis but it was found that the corona virus has been around since January.
Emergence of the corona virus in the United States may have been known to exist in February 2020. The latest findings reveal, this virus has existed in the US since January, precisely in California.In that state, a female patient aged 57 died on February 6. Initially the patient was only diagnosed with mild flu.
After the results of the laboratory tests came out, it was known that the patient was positive for Covid-19.”This report is very different from what the United States government previously revealed,” said Sara Clara County Hospital Medical Officer, California, Sara Cody.The findings are expected health officials can investigate how the Covid-19 outbreak got to America.

There are three initial cases
Besides the death of women in California, there are two other early cases. A 69-year-old man died on February 17, 2020 and another 70-year-old man died on March 6, 2020.All three cases have been confirmed by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. All three were declared dead due to contracting Covid-19.
At present local authorities are looking for ‘hot spots’ in California. According to travel history, the first three cases of Covid-19 in the US have never traveled abroad.”From the death report, we can conclude that there is a possibility that this virus has been around long before we realize it,” explained Cody.

Dikira Flu Light
At the beginning of the year, California was experiencing Muslim flu. many cases may be classified as mild influenza.These three cases were found because the forensic team was not satisfied with the results of the autopsy causing the death. Then the forensics party sent tissue samples to CDC that did not have Covid-19 tissue samples.
Then found three cases of death caused by exposure to the Covid-19 virus.Previously, cases of the Covid-19 virus in the US were first discovered in Washington on February 29, 2020. This was officially revealed by the United States government.The number of deaths due to Covid-19 in the US has reached 46 thousand on Wednesday, March 23, 2020. The United States currently has the highest number of corona virus cases in the world, reaching 820 thousand cases.

Cambridge University Research: The Origin of the Corona Virus Is Not in Wuhan
During this time, we always assume that the outbreak of the corona virus outbreak, based in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, began in late December 2019.However, researchers at the University of Cambridge doubt the belief that the corona virus outbreak began in late December 2019 and began in Wuhan.
New research suggests this outbreak may have originated in areas further south from Wuhan and began to spread to humans in early September 2019.Although not yet reviewed by other research colleagues, the findings have been published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences .

Corona Virus Mutated for Months
According to these findings, the corona virus that causes Covid-19 may have mutated to become an efficient type in infecting humans months ago.But the virus still remains in the body of a bat or other animal, or even a human for several months, without being transmitted to other humans.
“After that, it began to infect and spread among humans between September 13 and December 7, producing the network that we present in the (Journal) Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS),” said Peter Forster, a geneticist at the University of Cambridge.

First time infection in southern China
Researchers analyzed the strains of the corona virus using phylogenetic networks – an algorithm that can map the global movements of organisms through mutations in their genes.When trying to determine the exact location of a zero patient – the first human infected with the corona virus – early signs prompted researchers to look at an area further south from Wuhan city,
Where the infection was first reported in December.”What we reconstruct in phylogenetic networks is the first significant spread among humans,” Forster said.
