An outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in China is causing global concern. It came from a seafood and meat market in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. It has since spread to other countries, including the United States. View the current situation summary from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

COVID-19  is a respiratory illness that spreads mainly between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It also may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their mouth, nose, or eyes. In addition, some people without symptoms may be able to spread the virus. Learn what is known about the spread of COVID-19 on the CDC webpage.

The first case of COVID-19 in the United States was reported on January 21, 2020. The current count of cases of COVID-19 in the United States is available on the CDC’s webpage.
