COVID-19 is a strand of coronaviruses which can cause illness in humans or animals and was unknown prior to the recent outbreak in Wuhan, China (December 2019). While several of the strands can cause infections such as a common cold or lead to diseases with more serious health implications, COVID-19 mostly severely affects older persons and persons with pre-existing medical conditions. The virus has spread voraciously across the world, impacting over 70 countries and tens of thousands of people as of March 5th.
