Human coronaviruses are a type of virus and are common throughout the world. Scientists know of seven different coronaviruses that can infect people and make them sick. Common human coronaviruses usually cause mild to moderate upper-respiratory tract illnesses similar to the common cold. Most people get infected with these viruses at some point in their lives and these illnesses usually only last for a short amount of time.

However, two of these known human coronaviruses, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV have been known to cause severe symptoms including death.

In December 2019, a novel coronavirus was identified as the cause of an outbreak of a respiratory illness (COVID-19) in Wuhan, China. As of November 23, 2020, globally, there are more than 58,229,138 confirmed cases (based on WHO case definitions for COVID-19) and over 1,382,106 deaths as a result of the outbreak.

Please click here for a timeline of the outbreak.

COVID-19 Frontline Guide for Local Decision-Makers

The COVID-19 pandemic is causing significant disruptions to cities and local communities in the US and around the world. Successful suppression of COVID-19 in the United States will require urgent and decisive action by state, local and community leaders across the country. In collaboration with colleagues at the Nuclear Threat Initiative, the Center for Global Development, and Talus Analytics, we are launching the COVID-19 Frontline Guide. This resource is intended to provide leaders and public officials with a web-based decision support tool and progress indicators to assist in informed decision-making on how to combat COVID-19 in their jurisdictions. This guide provides a framework to help local leaders establish strategies to fight the outbreak, both by reducing transmission of the disease and by supporting their communities effectively. Access the Guide here: https://covid-local.org/

COVID Analysis and Mapping of Policies (AMP)

The COVID Analysis and Mapping of Policies (AMP) site is a part of the Georgetown Infectious Disease Atlas and provides access to a comprehensive list of policies and plans implemented globally to address the COVID-19 pandemic. In many cases, response efforts have been led by subnational governments or private and non-profit organizations. The database allows for simple searches, as each policy or plan has been categorized by the type of measure, in addition to implementation date and authorizing agency. In addition, policies can be identified by legal authority and plans by type of organization. Where available, PDFs or links to the original document or notice are included. Access the database here: https://covidamp.org/

Emergency Management for Epidemics

COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of strong capacities for organizing and managing the complex realities of a pandemic response, at regional, national, and local scales. However, emergency management, and the benefits it can provide, may not be familiar to many of the health authorities, especially at sub-national or local levels, that are battling to maintain control of the response effort. CGHSS faculty, in collaboration with subject matter experts at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Talus Analytics, have created a website containing training materials, checklists, and other resources for development and strengthening of public health emergency management capacities, with an emphasis on Emergency Operations Centers. The website also serves as a portal for asking questions about emergency management best practices as they relate to public health, and especially epidemic response, as well as to request further technical assistance.

The website is available here: www.epidemic-em.org (new window)
