False alarm: Speculation that the coronavirus reached one of the biggest names in tech, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and his wife, Janet, was shot down when she sent an email to USA TODAY indicating that she had a sinus infection.
Woz had hinted that he and Janet may have been infected with something much worse in a tweet from his verified Twitter account.
“Checking out Janet’s bad cough. Started Jan. 4. We had just returned from China and may have both been patient zero in U.S. (@ West Coast Sports Institute in Santa Clara, CA),” Woz tweeted in his verified Twitter account.
Four more people were revealed to have died in the Seattle area on Monday, bringing the total to six.
Woz’s tweet was geotagged from Foursquare, indicating that he and his wife were being examined at Santa Clara’s West Coast Sports Institute, according to Appleinsider.com.
That may be the case, but apparently it is not for coronavirus.
