This is a new virus and a previously unknown disease before the outbreak in Wuhan, China in December 2019. A coronavirus is a group of viruses that can cause disease in animals or humans. The speed of the epidemic depends on two things, namely how many people are infected in a single case and how long it takes between people to spread the infection. Until now, 209 countries have been affected by COVID-19.
