Coro­n­avirus dis­ease 2019 (COVID-19 for short) is an infec­tious dis­ease caused by SARS coro­n­avirus 2 (SARS-CoV­‑2). It is a res­pi­ra­to­ry ill­ness that is cur­rent­ly spread­ing around the world, includ­ing in the Pacif­ic North­west. Sci­en­tists and pub­lic health author­i­ties around the globe are rac­ing to learn more about the dis­ease, iden­ti­fy peo­ple who may be sick with it, and test/develop antivi­ral drugs to com­bat it. The pop­u­la­tions most sus­cep­ti­ble to becom­ing crit­i­cal­ly ill from COVID-19 are the very young and the very advanced in age (young chil­dren and seniors). We are track­ing the dis­ease and the pub­lic health response to it in our spe­cial series COVID-19 Update. You’ll find an archive of install­ments from this series below.
