Environmental Public Health / Health Inspector: COVID-19

In February 2020 the World Health Organization named the disease COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019). The virus that causes COVID-19 is "severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2" (SARS-CoV-2). It was previously referred to as 2019-nCoV.

There are actually many viruses that include the term "coronavirus", so if you are searching in health sciences resources, you will need to be specific.
