The current outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has prompted the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on January 30, 2020. As of February 28, 2020, COVID-19 has spread throughout China with nearly 80,000 confirmed cases and affected at least 51 countries and territories worldwide. Case isolation and contact tracing are common intervention used to control the outbreak of infectious diseases. Historically, these interventions have been successfully applied for controlling a variety of emerging infectious disease outbreaks, such as smallpox and SARS, but only partially effective for foot-and-mouth disease, and likely not effective for influenza.
