UPDATE :  A Government-funded study released yesterday found at least a dozen different strains of coronavirus were spreading through the UK in March.

We had it much earlier!  Last year and January this year, so what aren’t they telling us?
Can you too add your name and story to The List?

The world was made aware on 31st December last year when China contacted WHO and informed them of “cases of pneumonia of unknown etiology (unknown cause) detected in Wuhan”.  That was the first knowledge the world had of a coronavirus in China, or was it?

There have been reports of the case of a 55 year old man confirmed with coronavirus on 17th November, 2019; on 1st December another man was confirmed with the virus; again on 2 December a 51-year-old Dongguan doctor suddenly had a cough and fever and was hospitalised; the Wall Street Journal reported a 57-year-old seafood merchant working at the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market was considered to be the first patient prior to the previous cases;  the previous cases were NOT within the seafood market whatsoever.  On 9th January, 2020, the Chinese State broadcasted that a “new viral outbreak was first detected in the city of Wuhan, China,” on 12 December, 2019.

You’ve heard of the whistleblower, Dr. Li Wenliang, who died of the virus? Well, Dr. Ai Fen, a doctor at the Wuhan Hospital gave him the whistle in early December!  But had it spread by then?

In late December, early January I felt awful.  I was extremely tired.  For about at least 3-5 days I could hardly move out of bed for the sheer tiredness and want of sleep.  I had difficulty breathing at times, but put this down to the fact that I have asthma. I had a high temperature and felt ‘flu-like’.  The most distinguishing feature was the cough; the cough that kept you up all night and continued on after the other symptoms eventually disappeared.  Due the cough, I went to the GP, who without even looking at me diagnosed annual flu.  This was no way like flu.  I’ve had flu before.  This was more like a shorter version of the symptoms of coronavirus now being reported.

Since mentioning this on social media, many people have come forward to say they too suffered the same ‘illness’.  So for curiosity sake, we are asking you, did you too suffer from this in late December, early January of this year?  Please let us know and roughly whereabouts in the world you are.  Thank you.


  1. I had “something” in Nov, knocked me flat.Left with a cough. Got it again in New Year, and still have cough. Symptoms were different from THIS Chinese Virus though.

  2. It was the strangest thing, I started off with a sore throat about two weeks before Christmas and then just felt tired and my sinuses seemed permanently blocked. I didn’t seem to have any energy to do anything but compared to others I think I got off lightly only to get it again about six weeks later. I had a cough both times which I’ve still got but it isn’t as bad as it was. My partner had it too and he ended up in bed as he felt quite ill with it, he said it didn’t feel like a cold and he lost his sense of smell and taste. My sister had it and she lost her voice and my parents had it. My father was in bed for a week and it affected him more than he let on, it left him with a cough, as it did us all, and catarrh. He actually vomited at one point and he said it was green so I’m convinced we all had it and it affected us in different ways.

  3. Same here unusual lingering terrible flu like symptoms with cough and complete lack of energy that lasted for weeks. End of 2019
