Comparing the COVID-19 Coronavirus to 7 Other Infectious Diseases

After days and weeks of constant developments, it might feel like the COVID-19 coronavirus is the only thing we hear about. But the very novelty of coronavirus — first diagnosed in November 2019 according to Chinese officials — is why we know relatively little about it, compared to other diseases, and why it’s important to follow the latest updates and the advice of local authorities.

Current cases (March 13, 2020): 145,336

Current death toll (same date): 5,416
