The virus remains a major concern on the world stage since its outbreak in Wuhan, China in December.

Many countries have evacuated their citizens from Wuhan and other affected areas of China, placing them in isolated medical care.

The virus has spread to more than 20 other countries, including the US, UK, Singapore, France, Russia, Spain, and India.

The World Health Organization has declared the outbreak an international emergency.
