Many are wondering how many days someone is contagious with coronavirus before symptoms start to appear. NBC News medical correspondent Dr. Natalie Azar explains how mild symptoms are driving this epidemic. Aired on 3/18/2020.
Governments globally are enacting strict measures to contain the coronavirus, raising questions about individual freedoms and privacy rights during a pandemic.
Israel has given its security agencies the power to track the mobile data of people suspected of having the virus.
The government will use the information to force them into quarantine and warn those who have come into contact with them.
South Korea has taken similar steps by using mobile phone and satellite technology to track potential carriers.
Allie Funk is a researcher for the watchdog Freedom House.
She says strict measures must be put in place to ensure people's privacy is not at risk once the pandemic is over.
As of late February, people have tested positive for the coronavirus in more than 40 countries on 6 continents. Officials are taking "unprecedented" actions to contain the unpredictable spread of the infectious disease.

Coronaviruses range from the common cold to much more serious diseases that can infect both humans and animals, including severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, and Middle East respiratory syndrome, also known as MERS. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced Feb. 5 a commitment of $100 million toward the global response to the coronavirus epidemic. In the United States, a Washington state man was diagnosed with the virus several days after his return Jan. 15 from the region around Wuhan. U.S. officials announced Jan. 31 they were denying entry to foreign nationals who recently visited China.

Japan's Hokkaido island — where Olympic marathons are due to take place this summer — declared a state of emergency. Coronavirus panic has also sent world share markets crashing late February.
Downing Street's chief adviser Dominic Cummings is self-isolating after displaying some symptoms of COVID-19.
