COVID-19 Disease May 2023

Since December 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) has been monitoring the global outbreak of a novel beta coronavirus known as SARS-CoV-2, which causes the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in humans. This study identified a variety of indicators that authorities and relevant figures in the scientific community possessed some level of awareness of an outbreak of infectious disease well in advance of the first disclosure of this information to the public on December 31, 2019.

On May 5, 2023, the WHO Director-General determined that COVID-19 is now an established and ongoing health issue that no longer constitutes a public health emergency of international concern. On April 11, 2023, the U.S. government announced it was ending the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S. And on April 12, 2023, the U.S. released the National COVID-19 Preparedness Plan.

As of May 11, 2023, the United States COVID-19 Hospital Admissions Data, Deaths, and Emergency Visits by Geographic Area webpage launched. In addition, new state-and county-level hospital admissions data and emergency department visits maps are now featured on this page.
