A South African teacher, Jessica Bailing trapped in Wuhan, China says coronavirus patients in the coronavirus epicenter deliberately spit at health care workers to spread the highly contagious respiratory virus.
She said, “I’ve heard shocking stories about infected people going out of their way to contaminate others by taking off their masks and spitting in doctors’ faces,”
“I saw one video of a man spitting on all of the buttons in an apartment elevator,” she added.
As the situation in Wuhan worsens daily, the teacher said she is afraid to go out, because she might contract the deadly disease.
“I covered myself from head-to-toe with gloves on my hands, glasses to cover my eyes and of course, my mask,” she said.
According to reports, figures of cases of coronavirus in Wuhan have tripled in just three days. 6,100 have already been infected with the virus since the outbreak started a month ago, 133 of which have already died.
Top scientists believe that the actual number of patients infected with coronavirus is far greater than the official toll.
