The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has emerged in over 100 countries with over 100,000 cases confirmed worldwide. As public health officials issue warnings and mobilize medical personnel to treat and contain the virus, the outbreak is continuing to spread, to the detriment of vulnerable populations, the economy, travel and trade.
