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 41.5 million people have been sickened by COVID-19 in 235 countries, areas and territories, and more than 1.1 million have died, according to the WHO.

223,000 COVID-19-related deaths and nearly 8.5 million confirmed infections have been reported in the United States, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
