The disease in the U.S. and worldwide

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 11.6 million people have been sickened by COVID–19 in 216 countries, areas and territories, and more than 539,000 have died, according to the WHO.

More than 131,000 COVID-19-related deaths and 2.9 million confirmed infections have been reported in the United States, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which reported 50,304 new cases and 932 new deaths between Tuesday and Wednesday.

**Multiple providers and facilities can enter data into the DPH’s reportable disease surveillance system. Because of this, cases may sometimes be inadvertently duplicated. Duplicates are deleted from the system as soon as they are discovered, which occasionally can result in a decrease in the number of reported cases.
