And, at first glance, the statistics are terrifying.So far, over 2 million people have been infected with the virus.
It's been a truly dire couple of months.In a bid to combat the spread of the virus, various world leaders have imposed lockdowns upon their countries.
Millions are now quarantined to their homes...With strict social-distancing rules preventing them from having any physical contact with friends and loved ones.
It's an undeniably difficult time...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.
Although, there have been some positive stories.It's not been all doom and gloom.
Because, after months and months of bad news...I think it's about time we had a little bit of good news, don't you?
Over 400,000 people have recovered from the virus.According to Worldometers, approximately 492,833 people have made full recoveries.
