An outbreak caused by coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) occurred in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China, in December 2019. Up to March 2, 2020, at least 80180 cases have been reported. Most of the patients had a history of visiting Hubei Province or contacting people who had ever stayed in or passed by Hubei Province or exposed to symptoms. Some patients got infected only from asymptomatic contacts.
