Apple co-founder claims to be coronavirus 'patient zero'


Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak's bizarre claim that he and his wife may have both been 'patient zero' for coronavirus in the U.S. turned out to be a false alarm after his wife confirmed that she was suffering from a sinus infection.  

Wozniak sparked speculation by tweeting on Monday that his wife Janet was seeing a doctor about a bad cough she developed two months ago after the couple returned from a trip to China.  

'Checking out Janet's bad cough. Started Jan. 4. We had just returned from China and may have both been patient zero in U.S.,' the 69-year-old wrote in the post, which came soon after health officials announced that the American coronavirus death toll had climbed to six.

But his wife quickly quashed any suspicions, telling USA TODAY that her cough was actually due to a sinus infection.  

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak claimed on Monday that he and his wife Janet may have both been 'patient zero' for the coronavirus in the U.S.

Wozniak tweeted on Monday that his wife Janet had been suffering a bad cough for two months after they returned from a trip to China.

Wozniak's post was originally written in a check-in on the Swarm app, which indicated he and his wife were at the West Coast Sports Institute in Santa Clara, California. The check-in was then cross-posted to Twitter.   

He did not mention when he'd visited China or where he visited in the country where the outbreak originated in late December. 

His previous Swarm app activity shows three check-ins in Vietnam from December 27 to 29, but no mention of China. 

On January 9, Wozniak checked in to his home in Los Gatos, California, and wrote: 'Recovering from serious illness caught during cruise.' 

The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S. rose to 103 on Monday afternoon. The majority of individuals affected had recently traveled abroad.  

So far, 10 states, including California and New York, have confirmed or presumed coronavirus cases. 

All six deaths have occurred in Seattle, Washington and five of those were linked to the LifeCare long-term aged care facility in Kirkland in King County.
