Could people in the US already had Covid-19?







Is it possible that people in the US already had Covid-19? So, I am not a huge conspiracy person, but I am beginning to question this theory, even though I have been told I am wrong. However, we just don’t know if it is possible.



The first Covid-19 case happened in November, according to media reports on unpublished Chinese government data. (work cited: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/13/first-covid-19-case-happened-in-november-china-government-records-show-report). We don’t have any way to verify that, because it is China and they kept much of this virus secret for a long time.

According to National Travel & Tourism Office 177,039 Chinese visitors (excluding Hong Kong) arrived in the United States in the month of December 2019. (Work Cited: https://travel.trade.gov/about/index.asp)

For about one month after the first known case there were one to five new cases reported each day, the report said, and by the 20th December 2019 there were 60 confirmed cases. (work cited: same article as above)

A report, in the South China Morning Post, said Chinese authorities had identified at least 266 people who contracted the virus last year and who came under medical surveillance, and the earliest case was 17 November – weeks before authorities announced the emergence of the new virus. (https://www.scmp.com/news/china/society/article/3074991/coronavirus-chinas-first-confirmed-covid-19-case-traced-back)

The same article goes on to say, “Interviews with whistle-blowers from the medical community suggest Chinese doctors only realised they were dealing with a new disease in late December.”

Meanwhile approximately 177,039 traveled to the United States from China, as tourist - I would imagine the numbers are higher due to business travel, during the month of December 2019, this is only December numbers, travel continued through January and February, it was only halted recently.

My family and I traveled to Charleston, South Carolina on December 21st and spent 7 days touring the popular travel destination, encountering thousands of folks, from all over the world, several Asian tourists. We left South Carolina on December 28th and retuned to Missouri on December 29th. 





My daughter was diagnosed with a respiratory virus on January 11th - which was believed to be RSV. Exactly 14 days after we returned to Missouri. We were not tested for RSV as she is 16 and teenagers and adults don’t normally get RSV tested, at that time Covid-19 was not known much, so it would not have been something our doctor would have tested for. (Don’t you dare blame my doctor she is awesome)



On February 8, 2020, both PaPa Tom and I had a respiratory something that resembled my daughter’s symptoms previously. I was given an antibiotic shot, PaPa Tom was given antibiotics and continued steroid treatments, as he also had a UTI.



With my weakened immune system on February 28, 2020, I was diagnosed with Type A flu, which I tested positive for, but still had the heavy chest, continuous cough that lasted 2 weeks, and I eventually lost my voice from. Again Covid-19, was not believed to be in the US, so this was the best diagnosis, and I was positive for Type A, so it all made sense.


When questioning this week, I was told it was not possible, because Covid-19 was not it the states, but how do we know that? The CDC is saying there is little known about this virus, the Chinese did not release information for nearly 45 days after the first case, and we cannot be certain that one of the 177,039+ traveling to the US had not come in contact with virus or had it.

It was also said that if we would have had it PaPa Tom would have probably died, but again how do we know that? “The virus, which is now a pandemic, has infected at least 128,343 people across the world and killed 4,702. Of those who have contracted the virus since it began, 68,324 people have recovered.” (work cited: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/13/first-covid-19-case-happened-in-november-china-government-records-show-report) Were only 4702 of them over the age of 60? Has zero elderly recovered? We just don’t know, because of the lack of information from China in those first few weeks.

To back this question up, PaPa Tom has been and is on regular steroid breathing treatments, so would the treatments not have prevented the severeness of the virus? We just don’t know. There again is just not enough information.
I am not saying that I have had Covid-19, I am saying I had something similar to that, I was not tested for Covid-19(because medical professionals did not know to), so there is no way of knowing if we had it or not.
