The primary coronavirus sources

If you're wondering what exactly all these heady sounding acronyms actually stand for, and what they do, here are a few on the forefront of the pandemic, and also the main sources of News Break's coronavirus coverage.

The CDC is a federal agency headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, that's part of the Department of Health and Human Services. Their web site is updated daily, at noon Eastern Time, Monday-Friday. The World Health Organization (WHO), offers daily situation reports from around the world. Their numbers are organized by region — Europe, the Americas, and so forth. WHO works out of Geneva, Switzerland, with 150 country offices organized into six regions and bases its reporting on figures from individual countries. You can subscribe to their newsletters here. Their web site offers a link to a global map illustrating the outbreak by nation.

Among the many things we still don't know, we know coronavirus numbers are probably going to go higher before they start dropping. By staying as informed as possible, we can help to keep that number lower.
