In 2019, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) started monitoring the outbreak of a new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, which causes the respiratory illness now known as COVID-19. Authorities first identified the virus in Wuhan, China.
The virus has since spread to other nations, both within and outside Asia, prompting the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare this a pandemic. As of March 23, more than 340,000 people have contracted the virus worldwide, causing over 14,000 deaths. In the U.S., the virus has affected over 35,000 people, resulting in more than 450 deaths.
The first COVID-19 people had links to an animal and seafood business. This evidence indicates animals were initially transmitting the virus to humans. Furthermore, there were no links or access to the market for individuals with a more recent diagnosis, suggesting that humans would pass the virus on to each other.
Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus should experience mild to moderate respiratory disease and recover without any special treatment being needed. Older people and those with underlying health conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease and cancer are more likely to experience serious illness.
