The possibility that ``the new coronavirus reached Europe in November 2019'' emerged

'The new coronavirus discovered in China in December 2019 may have existed in Europe as of November 2019,' the French research team announced.

It is believed that the new coronavirus occurred in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and has since spread to the world. The Wuhan City Health Authority first reported a person infected with a new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) on December 8, 2019, so it seems that the new coronavirus had occurred at least before that day ..

On December 8, 2019, Wuhan City Health Authority reported 'Pneumonia patient of unknown cause'. Later, it was discovered that this patient was infected with COVID-19, and the theory that the new coronavirus occurred in Wuhan, China has taken root. People infected outside China were first confirmed in Thailand on January 13, 2020, and COVID-19 infected people have been detected one after another not only in China but also in the world.

However, the French research team insists that such a new coronavirus may have reached Europe as of November 2019. A research team led by Michel Schmidt, who works at Albert Schweizer Hospital in Colmar, France, reviewed a chest radiograph taken in November and December 2019, on November 16 and 18th. 'CVID-19-matching cases' were found in the two chest radiographs taken. The chest radiograph of the problem is below.

NBC News confirmed this chest radiograph with Vin Gupta , a specialist in lung and emergency medicine, which Gupta says 'is consistent with the pathology of patients with COVID-19, especially asymptomatic infections,' the study said. We supported the team hypothesis.

Since the French authorities first confirmed the first COVID-19 patient on January 24, 2020, the research team said of the results: ``Two months before the official confirmation of COVID-19 patients in France, COVID-19 -19 can be evidence that it was in fashion,' commented. 'To fight the enemy, you need to know the enemy,' Schmidt emphasizes, and emphasizes the importance of research into how the new coronavirus spread.

Schmidt's research team is not the only one to support the theory that COVID-19 was prevalent in France in 2019. Vincent Bretton, research director at the National Center for Scientific Research in France, collated questionnaires and medical data from the first COVID-19 epidemic in Mulhouse, ``a few weeks before the actual infection was confirmed. The COVID-19 epidemic has begun.'

A team of doctors at the Avicenne and Jean-Berdie hospitals in the suburbs of Paris, France, also reexamined the exhaled breath samples collected in December 2019, demonstrating that ``COVID-19 was prevalent in France in December 2019. '
