Benedict Cumberbatch Thought He Was Patient Zero For COVID-19

Benedict Cumberbatch has a fear that he could be “patient zero” when it comes to bringing the coronavirus to the United States.

In a new interview while discussing his new movie, The Mauritanian, the 44-year-old actor opened up about the fear.

He had been shooting the movie in Cape Town, South Africa, when he became “terribly ill with what he believes now was COVID-19″, and although he kept filming, Benedict was “throwing up between takes.”

“I was incredibly ill, to the point that when all this COVID stuff suddenly broke in the new year, I was thinking, ‘Oh my god, was I actually patient zero?’” Benedict wondered. “I was so ill — it was borderline pneumonia.”

There had been an ongoing search into which person could be patient zero. However, no one has ever been named.

The Mauritanian is currently available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
