COVID-19 is the disease caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which was identified after health officials reported a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China to the World Health Organization in late 2019. Since then, more than 5.9 million people have been sickened by COVID-19 in 216 countries, areas and territories, and more than 367,000 have died.

More than 102,000 COVID-19-related deaths and 1.7 million confirmed infections have been reported in the United States, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which reported more than 21,000 new infections and more than 1,200 new deaths in the U.S. between Saturday and Sunday.
