Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, came forward with some potentially shocking news regarding his wife and the growing spread of the novel coronavirus, which has spread through 14 states and infected nearly 100 thousand people worldwide.

Wozniak tweeted that his wife, Janet Hill, had contracted a bad cough on January 4 shortly after the pair returned from China. The first case of coronavirus was diagnosed in China on December 31 of last year.

Check out Wozniak's tweet below.

Wozniak sent the tweet from Santa Clara, California, where three cases of the virus have been confirmed so far.

The billionaire inventor's theory has yet to be confirmed, and it left Twitter users scratching their heads.

A recent tweet from USA Today's Jessica Guynn, however, claims that Hill assured her that the cough was due to a sinus infection.

While the Wozniaks may be off the hook as patients zero, people still aren't reassured that the worst is over when it comes to coronavirus.
