COVID-19/Coronavirus

Facts and Figures

COVID-19 is the official name for the coronavirus disease 2019. The disease is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which had not previously been identified in humans. More than 14.5 million cases have been confirmed globally, and the death toll has passed 600,000. Countries around the world have started to relax lockdown restrictions, but are being urged to continue widespread testing. The pandemic has put health systems under severe strain, and there have been shortages of critical supplies. There is currently no treatment for the disease, and research teams around the world have joined the race to develop a safe and effective vaccine.
