Hoe het coronavirus zich over de wereld verspreidt

March 20, 2020 - Het nieuwe coronavirus dat de ziekte COVID-19 veroorzaakt heeft zich over meer dan 150 landen en gebieden verspreid sinds het in december voor het eerst in de Chinese stad Wuhan werd geïdentificeerd.

The Chinese government imposed a lockdown in Wuhan and many other cities in central Hubei province in late January, but cases of the virus had already been exported to other regions of China and to other countries.

The World Health Organisation declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic on March 11 due to its rapid and sustained global spread and the severity of the illness the virus causes.

As of March 18, more than 245,000 cases of the virus had been reported across the world and more than 10,000 people had died.
