Infections by COVID-19 continue to increase in China and worldwide. The betacoronavirus was first reported in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. As of February 24, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) reports 78,811 laboratory-confirmed cases, including more than 2200 cases outside of China (1). Public health officials had thought the rate of new cases was slowing, but changes to diagnostic criteria led to an increased rate of new cases. In the past several weeks, many published studies, case series, and case reports have increased our knowledge of the clinical and radiographic manifestations of this infection. The purpose of this summary is to provide an update regarding recent information relevant to the radiologist.
