Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) was first identified in late 2019 in Wuhan, China and has since expanded into a worldwide pandemic. The disease causes respiratory illness with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and difficulty breathing.
As the disease spreads across the world and threatens public health, its emergence is inspiring some to rethink the American healthcare system. The outbreak is influencing the way Americans look at other affected areas such as economics, regulation, politics, bureaucracy, and education.
