Containment efforts in Iran
|Date||December 2019 - Present|
|Description||An outbreak of Covid-19, a potentially fatal coronavirus, in the Chinese city of Wuhan. The disease is very similar to one described by researchers from that city's Institute of Virology in 2015.|
A pandemic of COVID-19 is ongoing globally after a virus outbreak in the city of Wuhan, China in late 2019, where researchers identified a new coronavirus. The WHO later named the potentially fatal coronavirus "COVID-19". Its origins are a matter of ongoing debate.
In late 2019 Zhang Jixian, a doctor in Wuhan, noticed a cluster of severe infections all of which were linked to Huanan Seafood Market. On 30 December 2019 another Chinese doctor, Li Wenliang, warned colleagues of his suspicions that they faced a hitherto unknown virus. On 3 January 2020, Wuhan police summoned and admonished him for "making false comments on the Internet". Wenliang was allowed to continue working with patients. Although aged only 33, he reportedly died of the disease on 7 February 2020.
The Guardian reported in March 2020 that Xu Zhiyong, an activist who in early 2020 criticised the Chinese President Xi Jinping's handling of the virus outbreak "faces years in jail for 'subversion'". In January 2020, the Chinese policy changed from aggressive censorship, to aggressive containment efforts. Researchers[Who?] quickly published the gene sequence of the virus.
The virus was first detected right before the Lunar New Year extended vacation, a time of intense travel activity in China. 5 million people left Wuhan, a central hub for train travel, for their home village.
The Wuhan Institute Of Virology (WIV), China's only biosafety level 4 facility, is close to the market where COVID-19 was first reported. In 2016 researchers at the WIV reported "the isolation and characterisation of a novel bat coronavirus which is much closer to the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) in genomic sequence than others previously reported."  The proximity of which could indicate that the virus may have been released from the WIV, or alternatively that it was developed elsewhere but released there in order to suggest that possibility.
The Chinese military, on its website eng.chinamil.com.cn, republished a report from China Daily, saying the "fight against the epidemic is no less than a war". Those who die in the line of duty will be honored as martyrs and their families will receive support by the government. An opinion peace from Global Times remarked that "decoupling between the industries of the both countries" is now, while it generally has been discussed for a while, a possibility and wanted from China hawks in the Trump administration.
News of the outbreak lead to increased attention at international borders, with various countries prohibiting arrival from China and/or quarantining travellers. Containing spread was largely restricted to China, raising hopes that the virus could be contained as SARS was. However, the ability of the virus to be asymptomatic was initially not recognised, and virus outbreaks in Iran, Italy and South Korea followed. By 25 February, community transmission of the disease was known to be ongoing not only in China, but also Hong Kong, Iran, Italy, Japan, Singapore and South Korea. In March it was understood to be ongoing in many countries, leading the WHO to declare it a pandemic.
Failure of containment
By March 2020, many nation states followed the example of Italy, declaring far reaching restrictions on travel and/or other activities due to a "state of emergency". These measures were intended to slow rather than halt the spread of the virus, to prevent too large a disruption at any one time - especially, to try to prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed by a spike in acute cases.

On 29 February 2020, The Guardian reported that "Stock markets globally lost about $5tn (£3.9tn) of value last week, as measured by the MSCI all-country index." Analysts at ING said:
- “Even if China‘s factory production can recover in March, it will still face the risk of a low level of export orders. This is because the supply chain will continue to be broken, this time in South Korea, Japan, Europe, and the US, where COVID-19 has begun to spread.”
Travel restrictions have had a major impact on consumer behaviour and on business; shipping from China has been reduced by over 50%.[When?] This unpredicted disruption has lead to global anxiety about shortages of goods.
Professor Charles Leiber was charged on 28 January 2020 with two federal counts of making a materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statement to investigators regarding his participation in China's Thousand Talents Program.
