Illness caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has been termed "COVID-19," an acronym derived from "coronavirus disease 2019." On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, its first such designation since declaring H1N1 influenza a pandemic in 2009. Hundreds of thousands of deaths have been attributed to the disease worldwide.
Information about key aspects of COVID-19 is still emerging, including associations with other conditions, risk factors for severe disease, and best practices for patient care. Increased transmission during the fall and winter, alongside the flu season in North America, is also a significant concern.
