The first person to test positive for the novel coronavirus from a Wuhan food market where the pandemic likely started was a woman selling live shrimps, according to a document leaked to media.

Ms Wei lived in a rented flat less than 500 metres (1,640 feet) from the marketplace and developed a fever on December 11, she told Chinese news outlet The Paper.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Paper did not reveal Ms Wei’s full identity, but according to The Wall Street Journal she is 57 years old and her full name is Wei Guixian.

The report states that Ms. Wei first thought she had the seasonal flu and went to a small clinic nearby. The shot they gave her did not cure her illness. She later went to a hospital for help, then back to the clinic, then finally to a larger hospital where they told her several other people had came in with the same symptoms.

In January, the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention reportedly said the coronavirus originated from the wholesale seafood market where Ms. Wei worked, and said it passed from wildlife to humans.

Ms. Wei, who reportedly has now recovered from the illness, was one of the first 27 patients diagnosed with COVID-19, and the report states that 24 of those had direct links with the fish market.
