Jessica Bailing, a South African teacher, trapped in Wuhan, China, has alleged that Coronavirus patients in the epicenter deliberately spat 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 gets worsen 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 added.
According to reports, figures of cases of coronavirus in Wuhan have tripled in just three days, with 6,100 people already infected, since the outbreak started a month ago.
About 133 people have died already in China.
Scientists say they believe that the actual number of patients infected with the virus is far greater than the official figure.
