The coronavirus was circulating in France as early as December, new evidence suggests.

Doctors in France discovered that a patient who went to the hospital in late December with respiratory symptoms was positive for COVID-19, according to The Guardian. The man contracted the virus nearly a month before France confirmed its first cases. But it’s still not clear how the man was infected, as he wasn’t traveling. Doctors also can’t say whether or not the man was France’s “patient zero.”
