Note the spikes that adorn the outer surface of the virus, which impart the look of a corona surrounding the virion, when viewed electron microscopically. A novel coronavirus, named Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), was identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China in 2019. The illness caused by this virus has been named coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Maryland has opened up pre-registration for mass vaccination sites to all those age 16 and older effective immediately, with Gov. Larry Hogan saying the state will likely announce an acceleration in vaccine eligibility in the next few days. The state on Tuesday moved into phase 2B of its vaccine roll-out plan, which covers all those 16 years old and over with underlying conditions or disabilities.
