A pneumonia outbreak caused by the COVID-19 virus (previously known as 2019-nCoV) was reported in China’s city of Wuhan, a large trade and industrial center with a population of 12 million, in late December 2019. Since then, cases of the new coronavirus have been reported from nearly all parts of the world. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic.

The WHO statistics is based only on officially confirmed information about cases and deaths, provided by national governments.

At the same time, the organization does not provide the statistics on recoveries. According to the US-based Johns Hopkins University, a total of 971,599 people have recovered from the virus worldwide.
