Since appearing in Wuhan, China late last year, the virus has spread to at least 184 countries and regions.
Data compiled by the U.S.-based Johns Hopkins University shows worldwide infections surpassing 1.43 million with over 82,000 deaths. More than 301,000 people have also recovered.
The most common symptoms of the virus are fever, difficulty breathing and a dry cough.
