We now have a name for the disease caused by the novel coronavirus: COVID-19. The disease, which was first identified in the Wuhan province of China, was renamed by the World Health Organization, to avoid stigmatizing any geographical location, animal or individual with the disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that more cases of COVID-19 are likely to be identified in the coming days. There are 19 confirmed cases in the U.S. The CDC says it is probable that person-to-person spread will continue to occur, including in the United States. NACHC is directly communicating with the CDC Coronavirus Response Task Force on a regular basis. To read the full text follow this link to the NACHC Blog.
