What is coronavirus (COVID-19)?

In late 2019, public health officials identified a novel coronavirus not previously seen. Human coronaviruses are common throughout the world and commonly cause mild to moderate illness.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the outbreak a public health emergency of international concern. We recommend continuing to refer to the WHO or your local public health agency for up-to-date information.
