COVID-19, a strain of coronavirus, has killed more than 3,000 people
and infected 90,000+ in over 40 countries, according
to a Johns Hopkins tracker. The virus, which originated in
Wuhan, China, is disrupting businesses, schools, conferences and
everyday life across the world. More precautions are being taken,
including a push for more people to work remotely while health
organizations work to treat and contain the virus.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging citizens to
ask their schools and workplaces about contingency plans, like working
from home, in case they need to shut down due to coronavirus.
