American Soldier On Train Is Patient Zero Hoax Debunked!


Is This American Soldier Patient Zero For COVID-19?

A video of an American soldier smearing his saliva on a train pole is circulating on social media, accompanied by this message :

Just to share this clip and its comments from China:

The surveillance cameras in Wuhan have a road map of the US soldiers and a video record of the time.

The American soldier had put on a mask during the military games. Began to spread the epidemic virus by subway. 

If you look at the movement of that hand carefully, from the mouth to the armrest, you will know the evil and evil heart of Americans.

Poor Wuhan citizens are infected with the ruthless epidemic virus.  ☝☝☝

The message implies that the Chinese have determined that Patient Zero is an American soldier who attended the 2019 Military World Games that was held in Wuhan, China from 18 to 27 October 2019.

It also implies that the Americans brought COVID-19 to Wuhan, and used one of their soldiers to spread it to the Chinese. And the video is the evidence.

Even the Chinese Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Zhao Lijian pushed the same fake claim, saying, “When did patient zero begin in the US? It might be the US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan!

Well, all that is HOGWASH. Let us show you why…


American Soldier On Train Is Patient Zero Hoax Debunked!

The truth is the video was recorded on 9 March 2020 in a Belgian subway, not October 2019 in Wuhan.

The man in the video was not an American soldier, but an intoxicated Belgian who licked his finger and rubbed it on the subway pole.

He was later arrested for doing that, and the train removed and disinfected.
