Worldwide, over 2.68 million cases of coronavirus have occurred with over 187,000 reported deaths. Recovery is very possible, even for those once very sick, as some 732,000 people have now recovered from the coronavirus since the start of record-keeping for the outbreak, according to data compiled by the U.S.' Johns Hopkins University.
