Origins of COVID-19

At the very end of 2019, WHO was alerted to several cases of pneumonia in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. This virus displayed qualities that were unique and did not match any other known virus, raising alarm throughout the medical community.

Chinese authorities confirmed the following week that they had identified the new virus, known as the Coronavirus, a family of viruses that include the common cold, along with viruses such as SARS and MERS. The new virus was temporarily named “2019-nCoV” (now COVID-19)

Latest Updates

The latest statistics on the virus show over 22 Million cases across more than 213 countries and territories worldwide, with over 790,000 deaths as a result of the virus. On the other hand, over 15 Million have recovered from COVID-19.

How To Combat the Spread of COVID-19
