The first reported cases of COVID-19 were in Wuhan, China in December, and then the disease began to spread in varying rates and intensities across many parts of the globe through incubation in human hosts. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared a world health emergency on January 30, and announced on Wednesday that it is classifying the outbreak as a pandemic. As of Wednesday, the WHO reported that there are 118,326 infected individuals worldwide, with 80,955 of them in China. 3,162 individuals have died from the disease in China, and 1,130 have died outside China.
