Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is defined as illness caused by a novel coronavirus now called severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2; formerly called 2019-nCoV), which was first identified during an outbreak of respiratory illness cases in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, WHO's first such designation since declaring H1N1 influenza a pandemic in 2009.
