Information and guidance from WHO on the current outbreak of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) first reported from Wuhan, China on 31 December 2019 can be found on this web site. For daily updates please visit this page.

WHO works closely with global experts, governments and partners to rapidly expand scientific knowledge on this new virus, monitor the spread and virulence of the virus, and advise countries and individuals on health security measures to prevent the spread of this epidemic.

Hundreds of people have now died from the novel coronavirus which first appeared in December 2019 in the Chinese city of Wuhan. Tens of thousands of cases in China have been confirmed, and experts say they expect the numbers to continue to rise.

Although the vast majority of cases have been in China, global health officials are worried about the virus, which can cause pneumonia. Dozens of cases were confirmed in more than 20 countries, and the Philippines reported the first death outside of China. Most people affected by the virus had traveled from Wuhan, the outbreak's epicenter.
