A novel coronavirus emerged in China in late 2019; it has been officially named by the World Health Organization (WHO) as COVID-19. LabRoots will be working to educate the community about this pathogen in an ongoing series of virtual webinars that will start on April 2, 2020.
This virus is a member of the coronavirus family and is zoonotic, or transmissible from animals to humans, and is thought to have originated in bats like other coronaviruses. Researchers are working to learn more about how this virus made the jump from animals to humans, probably through an intermediate species.
The COVID-19 virus has already infected tens of thousands of people worldwide. In China, hundreds have been killed, leading the World Health Organization to declare an international health emergency, one of only four that have ever been declared.
Researchers have found evidence that the virus can be transmitted by people that don't have symptoms. Scientists are working to find ways to treat the fever, respiratory illness, cough, and breathing difficulties it causes.
