One of the fastest spreading viruses of the 21st century, coronavirus emerged in Wuhan, China in December of 2019. Since then, it has killed 638 people, mostly in mainland China, trapped thousands in quarantine, and paralyzed the world's second-biggest economy.

Outside mainland China, it has infected over 31,000 in more than 25 countries, according to the latest reports.
