In December 2019, news of a strange new illness, mainly in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei Province in China, came through social media. Little was known about the virus until 11 February 2020, when it was named severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) (World Health Organization (WHO), 2020a). Although a member of the family of coronaviruses and similar to the virus implicated in the SARS outbreak of 2003, virologists have reported some differences, making COVID-19 a novel coronavirus. We tell the story.
