With the increase of misinformation and unreliable news surrounding Coronavirus COVID-19, we suggest going to the following trusted sources to learn more about this topic:

World Health Organization (WHO)

The World Health Organization (WHO) is a trusted, authoritative source for public health information. The WHO announced the official name for the disease that is causing the 2020 outbreak of coronavirus disease: COVID-19.

Coronavirus (health topic)
This landing page for the Coronaviruses family of viruses includes background, select news on the outbreak, and links to Questions and Answers on Coronaviruses.

Advice for the Public
This WHO page on Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has practical information for dealing with the outbreak on a personal level. The page includes video, graphics, myth-busters, and even tips for coping with related stress.

Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are our nation's premier authority on public health information.

Coronavirus
The page that the CDC has developed for American citizens is a one-stop shop for background on the strain, COVID-19, as well as the class of coronaviruses; CDC-authored news monitoring the situation, including all the statistics on cases; and a wealth of resources for professionals, travelers, and the general public.
