Situation in the world

On 31 December 2019, the Municipal Health Commission of Wuhan (China) reported to the World Health Organization a cluster of pneumonia cases of unknown aetiology in Wuhan City, Hubei province. On 9 January 2020, the China CDC reported that a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) had been detected as the causative agent of the respiratory disease later named Covid-19. China immediately made the genome sequence publicly available. This allowed rapid development of a diagnostic test.
