News by South China Morning Post (SCMP) and WHO report refutes that the patient zero has been identified from the Chinese health authorities.
SCMP on 13 March 2020 states that the first case of COVID-19 is traced back to November 17 according to Government data seen by SCMP, further it also states that 55-year-old from Hubei province could have been the first person to have contracted COVID-19 on 17 November 2019, from that date onwards nearly 4-5 flu-related cases have been reported and the patient zero is not yet confirmed. The report by the world health organization has not declared the patient zero.
We found that the image of the patient zero circulated in social media was first found in news by Hong Kong Free Press on 22 January 2020 state that a tourist from Wuhan has affected by a new SARS-like coronavirus from China, according to the Hong Kong government.
Thus we conclude that there is no official statement by Chinese authority or evidence that patient zero has been confirmed and he had sex with bats.
