The rate of infection of coronavirus is very high. In fact, many of the frontliners have also contracted the disease. In a previous report by KAMI, doctors have died after being infected by COVID-19.
The coronavirus outbreak started out in Wuhan, Hubei Province of China. Scientists believed that the virus came from an animal at one of Wuhan's wet markets. At present, the Philippines is under a state of calamity while the entire Luzon is under an enhanced community quarantine.
