Coronaviruses are not new, they were first discovered in the USA in the 1930s as the cause of Avian Infectious Bronchitis (IBV). In 1948 IBV was discovered in birds in the UK. Symptoms in poultry are very similar to COVID-19 in humans, namely lethargy, fever and a dry cough. Coronaviruses cause a wide range of conditions in a very wide range of species, from arthritis in poultry, epidemic diarrheal disease in pigs and some common colds in humans. Bats seem to be the most common reservoir for coronaviruses worldwide. https://virologyj.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12985-015-0422-1

I have altered the scale of the 'Tested per day' metric. Previously it was x10 as it was off the scale. This has now been changed to a x1 scale in line with the other metrics.
