The World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a “public health emergency of international concern.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), coronavirus (known as COVID-19) was first detected in China and has been identified in over 80 countries. The number of reported cases is approaching 100,000 and over 3,000 people have died from the virus.
