In December 2019, an outbreak of COVID-19, an acute respiratory illness caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, was detected in mainland China. Researchers have been tracking the spread of the virus, are mobilizing to speed innovative diagnostics and are working on a number of vaccines to protect against COVID-19.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) leads NIH COVID-19 clinical research, and NIH research to develop therapeutics and vaccines for coronaviruses.
