As the coronavirus continues to spread, global media coverage has been predominantly focused on the number of new cases of the virus recorded around the world as well as the number of deaths it has inflicted. Statistics regarding the number of people recovering from the coronavirus have not attracted as much attention but they do exist. According to tracking from the Johns Hopkins University, the number of people recovering from the virus is increasing, though a huge gap does exist compared with new infections.
As of February 11, 2020, at least 4,200 people have made recoveries, the vast majority of them in China. Patients in other countries have also made progress with ten recovering in Thailand, along with seven in Singapore. Three patients have also gotten better in the United States, Malaysia and South Korea. Even though the statistics are promising, there are still more than 43,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus worldwide.
