Abstract

Although the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‑19), which originated in China, as a public health emergency of international concern as early as January 30, 2020, the current COVID‑19 epidemic is spreading rapidly. As of April 19, 2020, total of 2,392,165 confirmed cases had been reported in 211 countries and regions, with 614,421 (25.68%) cured cases and 164,391 (6.87%) deaths. Scientists and clinicians have made great efforts to learn much about COVID‑19 so that it can be controlled as soon as possible. Herein, this review will discuss the epidemiology, pathology, clinical features, diagnosis and treatment of COVID‑19 based on the current evidence.
