Gallery: From Wuhan to the White House: A timeline of COVID-19’s spread (Stacker)

a woman walking down the street talking on a cell phone: COVID-19 has spread quickly around the world, causing more than 1 million deaths and infecting more than 38 million people as of Oct. 14, 2020, according to Johns Hopkins' Coronavirus Resource Center. It’s already hard to remember life before COVID-19—but it was only 10 months ago that a doctor in China sounded the alarm about a new respiratory virus. Since then, cases have been confirmed in nearly every country and on every continent except Antarctica. The United States today has the most COVID-19 cases in the world.  The story of how COVID-19 spread so far and so fast is a story of government secrecy, delayed action, polarizing politics, and a highly contagious disease. To better understand what has happened and what might follow, Stacker constructed a timeline of the COVID-19 pandemic from its first mention by Dr. Li Wenliang in Wuhan, China. Our timeline includes information from a range of sources including news outlets such as the New York Times and CNN, science articles, and releases from the World Health Organization (WHO).
