King County has confirmed cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The virus is spreading from person-to-person, and the number of cases detected in the United States and many other countries is growing.
The vast majority of the illnesses around the world are mild, with fever and cough. A much smaller percentage of cases are severe and involve pneumonia, particularly in elderly people and people with underlying medical conditions.
It’s important that everyone take steps to reduce the spread of novel coronavirus.
