Global context

Though a majority of people infected with the coronavirus will only experience light cold or flu symptoms, it can also lead to pneumonia, multi organ failure and other life-threatening complications, particularly putting people with pre-existing conditions and the elderly at risk. Currently the United States are experiencing the highest number of reported coronavirus infections, followed by Italy and then China.
