What Chinese authorities first treated as dozens of cases of unknown pneumonia in the Hubei province, has now become a global health emergency. In about three months, the respiratory novel coronavirus illness called COVID-19 has expanded to nearly all corners of the globe, so far leaving over 100,000 people infected and more than 4,000 dead.

After spreading into Japan and South Korea, the virus has now been confirmed in every European Union member country, with Italy becoming the first country to enforce a nation-wide lockdown as the death count tops 600.
