The outbreak originated in Wuhan, China, in December 2019 and was pronounced to be a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on 30 January 2020 by the World Health Organization. On the 11 March 2020 this outbreak was classified as a pandemic. Greater than 11 million cases of COVID-19 were reported in 185 countries and territories and caused more than 535,000 deaths.
