Infections have been reported in more than 210 countries and territories since the first cases were identified in China in December 2019.

The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales. These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air, and quickly fall on floors or surfaces.
