A 72-year-old bodybuilder from Wuhan, China died from the new coronavirus on 6th February, reported Chinese media. News about this came as a shock to many as the 72-year-old was known to be really active and fit.

It was on 18th January when Qiu Jun was working out at his gym as usual. His students were a little worried about him as the Wuhan virus had begun spreading rapidly in the city, and told him not to stay in the gym too much.

When it was made known that the virus could be transmitted between humans, Qiu Jun was still going to the gym.
