“Community transmission” are two of the worst words you can hear from epidemiologists tracking the progress of infectious diseases. Once a pathogen reaches that level, it means the infection can’t be traced to a source. It means people have started getting the disease without knowing who infected them, and there are likely plenty of undetected cases. For COVID-19, it happened quite quickly in most countries where the novel coronavirus arrived. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced the first community transmission of coronavirus on February 26th. It was a person in California who hadn’t traveled to China and wasn’t exposed to any known patients.
