法国巴黎公立医院团体下属两家医院的重症监护部门卖力人伊夫·科昂克日透露称,法国至少在2019年12月底就泛起了新冠病毒熏染病例。这比法国官方宣布的首批确诊病例要早近1个月。

There's new evidence that the coronavirus may have been inFrance weeks earlier than was previously thought.

最新证据讲明,新冠病毒在法国泛起的时间可能比之前认为的要早几周。

A French hospital which has retested old samples frompneumonia patients discovered that it treated a man who hadCOVID-19 as early as Dec 27, nearly a month before the Frenchgovernment confirmed its first cases.

法国一家医院复检肺炎患者的旧样本后发现,该医院早在2019年12月27日就收治了一名患有新冠肺炎的男性。而直到近一个月后,法国政府才确诊了首例新冠肺炎病例。

Yves Cohen, head of resuscitation at the Avicenne and JeanVerdier hospitals in the northern suburbs of Paris, told BFM TVthat scientists had retested samples from 24 patients treated inDecember and January who tested negative for the flu.

位于巴黎北部郊区的阿维塞讷医院和让-韦迪埃医院的重症监护部门卖力人伊夫·科昂对BFM电视台说,科学家复检了2019年12月和2020年1月收治的24名患者的检测样本,他们其时的流感病毒检测效果呈阴性。

“Of the 24, we had one who was positive for COVID-19 on Dec27,” he told the news channel on Sunday.

上周日(5月3日),科昂在接受电视台采访时说:“在这24名患者中,12月27日收治的一名患者新冠病毒检测效果呈阳性。”

If verified, this finding would show that the virus wasalready circulating in Europe at that time -- well before the firstknown cases were diagnosed in France or hotspot Italy.

如果获得证实,这一发现将讲明,新冠病毒其时已在欧洲流传——远在法国和疫情较为严重的意大利确诊首例已知病例之前。

The French team looked at people admitted to the hospital withflu-like illness between December 2 and January 16 who were notultimately diagnosed with influenza. They tested frozen samplesfrom those patients for coronavirus.

法国研究小组重审了在2019年12月2日至2020年1月16日期间因流感样疾病入院的患者病例,这些患者最终没有被确诊患有流感。他们对患者的冰冻样本举行了新冠病毒检测。

"One sample was positive taken from a 42-year-old man born inAlgeria, who lived in France for many years, and worked as afishmonger," the team wrote. "His last trip was in Algeria duringAugust 2019."

研究小组写道:“一份来自一名42岁男性的样本检测呈阳性,他出生在阿尔及利亚,在法国生活了多年,是一名鱼贩。他最后一次旅行是在2019年8月去了阿尔及利亚。”

The samples had all initially been collected to detect fluusing PCR tests, the same genetic screening process that can alsobe used to detect the presence of the novel coronavirus in patientsinfected at the time the sample is collected.

起初,医院收罗这些样本是为了通过聚合酶链式反映(PCR)检测流感,同样的基因检测法式也可以用来检测患者在采样时是否熏染了新冠病毒。

Each sample was retested several times to ensure there were noerrors, he added.

科昂增补说,每个样本都举行了多次复检,以确保没有错误。

France, which has seen almost 25,000 people die from the virussince March 1, confirmed its first three COVID-19 cases on Jan 24,including two patients in Paris and another in the southwesterncity of Bordeaux.

法国于2020年1月24日确诊了首批3例新冠肺炎病例,其中两名患者在巴黎,另有一名患者在西南部波尔多市。自2020年3月1日以来,法国已有近2.5万人死于新冠病毒熏染。

Cohen said it was too early to know if the patient whose Dec27 test was COVID-19 positive is France’s “patient zero”. Knowingwho was the first is critical to understanding how the virusspread.

科昂说,现在还不清楚这名2019年12月27日样本新冠病毒检测效果呈阳性的患者是否是法国的“零号病人”。找到“零号病人”是相识新冠病毒如何流传的关键。

Cohen said the patient had survived and that a firstinvestigation to trace the first contamination has been carriedout.

科昂说,这名患者已经康复,追踪最初熏染路径的开端观察已经展开。

“He was sick for 15 days and infected his two children, butnot his wife, who works in a supermarket.

科昂说:“他病了15天,感染给了两个孩子,但在超市事情的妻子没有被熏染。”

“He was amazed, he didn’t understand how he had been infected.We put the puzzle together and he had not made any trips. The onlycontact that he had was with his wife.”

“他很受惊,不明确自己是怎么被熏染的。我们把线索集中在一起,他没有旅行史,唯一的密切接触者是他的妻子。”

Researchers in the US have also started finding evidence thatthe virus was infecting and killing people earlier than thecountry's first reported cases.

美国的研究人员也开始发现证据讲明新冠病毒的熏染和死亡病例早于该国首次陈诉的病例。

"Identifying the first infected patient is of greatepidemiological interest as it changes dramatically our knowledgeregarding SARS-COV-2 and its spreading in the country. Moreover,the absence of a link with China and the lack of recent travelsuggest that the disease was already spreading among the Frenchpopulation at the end of Dec, 2019," they wrote.

研究人员写道:“确认第一个被熏染的患者对盛行病学很有意义,因为它极大地改变了我们对新冠病毒及其在法国流传的认识。此外,首个病例与中国没有联系,也没有近期的旅行史,这些都讲明,在2019年12月底,新冠肺炎已经在法国人群中流传了。”
