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 31.4 million people have been sickened by COVID-19 in 235 countries, areas and territories, and more than 967,600 have died, according to the WHO.

More than 200,000 COVID-19-related deaths and 6.9 million confirmed infections have been reported in the United States, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which reported 41,310 new U.S. cases and 1,136 new deaths between Wednesday and Thursday.
