The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently announced the official name of the coronavirus: COVID-19.

Amongst this development, recent news has begun to suggest that although the death rate of COVID-19 is still rising, infection rates appear to be slowing down. WHO has also recently announced that it hopes a vaccine for COVID-19 could be developed within 18 months.

Hospitals and health centers across the world continue to be on high alert for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 in their patients.
