THE WORLD HAS NEVER BEFORE EXPERIENCED a pandemic developing on an epic scale such as that unleashed by a new type of virus, which is more technically known as the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and causes the coronavirus disease called COVID-19. The disease has spread worldwide at an alarming rate, infecting over 200,000 people across 181 countries and spreading rapidly with more infections occurring outside of China.

First reported by Chinese hospitals in early December 2019 in Hubei province, China, the disease quickly spread and within days had infected hundreds of people. In its early stages, up to 140 cases of infection were reported daily. Soon, thousands more were infected, which prompted government authorities to lock down Hubei’s capital and transportation hub Wuhan as well as other surrounding cities on 23 January.
