Coronavirus Outbreak: Live Updates

Coronavirus Outbreak: Live Updates

The outbreak, initially identified in China, is continuing to grow.

The disease is called COVID-19. 

It’s caused by an infection from the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, which is one of multiple coronaviruses that can be transmitted to humans.

Other examples include SARS, MERS, and even the common cold.

California, Washington, and Oregon announce plan to coordinate reopening economies

Governors of three western states announced they would work together as they contemplate easing restrictions on residents’ movement amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, and Oregon Gov. Kate Brown announced they would coordinate their plans for reopening the economy and opening up public spaces.

There’s no timetable for when shelter-in-place orders would be lifted, but all three states have avoided the drastic spike in cases that have overwhelmed hospitals in New York, Michigan, and other states. This is despite the fact that California and Washington were among the first states to see community spread of COVID-19.
