A report claims to have evidence that this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas played a major role in spreading the coronavirus in US.

The event, held in January, went through the middle of the outbreak that happened in China, making experts & # 39; an ideal place for transmission & # 39; have made.

Multiple attendees became seriously ill after the days after CES, but were dismissed as nothing more than having the & # 39; CES flu & # 39; that does not occur every year.

However, these individuals suffer from different symptoms than previous years, including fever, shortness of breath, dry cough, pain and body pain – all of which are caused by COVID-19.

A professor who attended the conference came down with an illness after the event and recently tested positive for the coronavirus – making his case & # 39; the first clear evidence that the virus was probably on & # 39; e conference circulated. & # 39;

The conference was attended by more than 180,000 people, many of whom were from outside the US, and more than 100 of the people traveled from Wuhan, China, where the coronavirus first began.

A report claims to have evidence that this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas played a major role in spreading the coronavirus in US. The event, held in January, went through the middle of the outbreak happening in China, making experts say & # 39; an ideal place for transmission & # 39; made

The news comes from APM Reports, an investigative news publication that did not speak to one of its attorneys who had recently tested positive for the coronavirus.

DailyMail.com reached CES for comment and has not received a response yet.

Michael Webber, a professor at the University of Texas at Austin, tested positive for antibodies to Covid-19 this week and although CES was held months ago, he fell ill shortly after the conference ended.

Theories that the virus in US FS under CES landfall has spread across the web.

But APM Reports says its test results & # 39; are the first clear evidence that the virus was probably on & # 39; e conference circulated. & # 39;

Webber told the publication that his & # 39; revelation comes at the same time that public health officials in Northern California, including Silicon Valley, reported three newly confirmed coronavirus deaths. & # 39;

He also shared his cravings on Twitter, noting that he felt swollen, had pain in his body, had difficulty breathing, and had fever for days.

A tweet on January 18 reads: & # 39; I know in my brain that I don't have this virus, & # 39; he wrote. & # 39; But I was in Las Vegas last week w / my boss at # CES2020 w / 170k people, including many from China & we got an early respiratory call that didn't make us sick for a week so my paranoid even convinced is that I have this new killer virus. & # 39;

This post went up about a week after CES came close and on the same day the first Americans were tested for coronavirus.

Others also shared their misery of an illness.

The CES timeframe, which was held Jan. 7 through 10 and its attorneys, could create a trace of how & # 39; the virus spread through Silicon Valley at a time when the US was unaware of its implications, said Dr. Peter Chin-Hong, an expert and infectious disease researcher at & # 39; the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine.

APM Reports says Webber's & # 39; test results are the first clear evidence that the virus was likely to be on & # 39; e conference circulated & # 39 ;.

Not only did people from China and people from at least 63 other countries attend, but setting up the event is a breeding ground for disease. Some attendees used Twitter to see if anyone else was seriously ill after the event

& # 39; As a clinician, it was strange to be in & # 39; e Bay Area to be Santa Clara County's hotspot, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; You would think it would be San Francisco, because there are a lot of people (the airport) and a lot of Chinese people, but I think there's something different about must. & # 39;

However, Chin-Hong also notes that more research needs to be done to link CES to the virus's spread.
