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 health officials reported 976 new cases of the coronavirus Thursday, and 16 more deaths caused by the disease. Reported cases have been mostly on the decline in the state since mid-January, when they reached an all-time high. The same is true of hospitalizations and deaths caused by the virus.
