Re: Coronavirus

I think that the coronavirus was definitely going around in Europe before it was confirmed via testing (and most likely elsewhere in the world as well). Tests for the virus weren't even first developed until last January. I also seem to remember once reading that, in France, some old samples were tested that had been taken in December of 2019 that had tested positive for the virus once those samples were later tested. Yeah, here is an article about it...

After retesting samples, French hospital discovers COVID-19 case from December

"A French hospital which has retested old samples from pneumonia patients discovered that it treated a man who had COVID-19 as early as Dec. 27, nearly a month before the French government confirmed its first cases."
