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. The outbreak has been declared a global pandemic: the number of cases has now passed one-and-a-quarter million. There is currently no treatment for the disease, and health systems around the world are becoming overstretched. Pharmaceutical companies and research groups are racing to develop an effective vaccine.
