A South African teacher who is trapped in Wuhan claimed that the citizens affected by coronavirus are deliberately trying to spread it by spitting at health care workers.
Jessika Bailing, the teacher trapped in the Chinese city at the center of the outbreak further claimed that the people infected with the virus were also spitting on elevator buttons.
She told that she is afraid to go outside, scared that she might also get infected with the virus.
She said: “I covered myself from head to toe with gloves in my hands, glasses to cover my eyes and of course my mask. Coronavirus cases have tripled in just three days.”
The virus is regarded as highly contagious as it can spread through a sneeze or a cough. Since the outbreak began a month ago about more than 6100 people have been infected with the deadly disease.
