As the rate of new coronavirus cases continues to climb worldwide, new data shows more than 300,000 people have recovered from the infection since the outbreak began in late December.

There have been more than 1,414,710 confirmed coronavirus cases worldwide, with more than 300,000 recoveries and more than 81,000 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University data.

While the disease can cause varying degrees of illness and even death, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) say adults aged 65 and older, and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions such as heart and lung disease or diabetes, might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

But for the majority of people who become infected, the coronavirus brings only mild symptoms, such as cough and fever.
WHO says those that experience mild symptoms typically recover from the illness in about two weeks, while those who experience more severe illness could take up to six weeks to recover.
