And the only thing getting many people through these dark times is the idea that, by remaining self-isolated, they are helping to slowly rid the world of the devastating pandemic.

But thankfully we have begun seeing many amazing stories being shared.

From people who have managed to recover from the virus...

One ninety-three-year-old patient defied all odds by beating the virus.

He was seen slowly leaving the hospital, and shaking the hands of each medical worker who had fought hard to save his life.

Firefighters surprised their colleague who had recently recovered from the virus.

A firefighter had the best surprise when he was finally able to be discharged from the hospital - his full squad were stood outside waiting.

One new mom was diagnosed with the virus shortly after giving birth...

And, thankfully, she has since been given the all-clear, and can now return home to her child.

All of these stories bring back a little bit of positivity.

Well, here's a little bit more.

And probably the pick-me-up we all needed to hear.

And here's another positive story!

The UK's longest suffering COVID-19 patient has finally returned home.

She was in hospital for almost all of lockdown.

Fatima Bridle was in Southampton General Hospital for a whopping 141 days battling coronavirus as well as sepsis and pneumonia.

Her lungs collapsed.

Which meant she needed to go onto a ventilator.

And she was placed in a coma.

For a massive 40 days. But finally - after all of the agony and uncertainty, Fatima has defied the odds and returned home to her family!

She's so grateful for the doctors and nurses that saved her.

Speaking about her battle, she told The Sun:
I can't believe I've woken up from all of this. I feel I've been gifted a new life.
I wished I was dead at one point. It was so scary and terrifying. I wanted to scream out but I couldn't.
It was horrific. I didn't have Tracy because he could not visit. The NHS saved my life. Everyone was incredible. All deserve a medal.
Congratulations Fatima!

Now we are entering the new normal.

With lockdown restrictions easing across the globe, we are entering what they are calling 'the new normal', suggesting the world will never go back to the same state of normality as before.

But despite the statistics.

Some people still aren't taking coronavirus all that seriously...

Coronavirus isn't a joke.

Yes things in much of the world seem to be getting better - but we have to take this virus seriously.

One way we can do this.

Is by wearing face-masks, with experts across the globe explaining just how important they are when it comes to stopping the virus from spreading.

Stay safe.

Things certainly aren't back to normal just yet - and we need to make sure we keep following the restrictions and guidelines in place. Or things could get much worse.
