The coronavirus outbreak is thought to have started last December in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. Then it spread rapidly to all other countries. Billions of people have been infected with this disease. As a result of the new variant of Coronavirus, Omicron, the infection has started to increase again in many countries.
