What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is the disease caused by a virus strain that began spreading in people in December 2019.

Health experts are concerned because little is known about this new respiratory virus, and it can cause severe illness and pneumonia in some people.

  • The COVID-19 virus was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.
  • The COVID-19 virus is not the same as the coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold.
  • Formerly, this disease was referred to as "2019 Novel Coronavirus" or "2019-nCoV."
