The novel human coronavirus disease COVID-19 has become the fifth documented pandemic since the 1918 flu pandemic.
 
As of now, we can trace the first report and subsequent outbreak from a cluster of novel human pneumonia cases in Wuhan City, China, since 1st December 2019.
 
The World Health Organization (WHO) officially named this infectious disease coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) on 12 February 2020. On 11 March 2020, the WHO finally made the assessment that COVID-19 can be characterized as a pandemic.
 
On January 14 this year, a ten-member World Health Organization (WHO) expert team arrived Chinese city of Wuhan to investigate the origins of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Under this background, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a news conference in Geneva yesterday that all hypotheses into the origins of the novel coronavirus are on the table and warrant complete and further study ahead of a long-awaited report that will be released today.
 
Tedros said the WHO received the full mission report over the weekend on the origins of the SARS-Cov-2 virus from the team that visited Wuhan earlier this year and this report was sent to member states under embargo. Approximately, 2.79 million people have died so far from the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak as of March 29, 2021.
