The stunning revelation surfaced just hours after the World Health Organization announced over 10,000 people are contracting the deadly coronavirus on a daily basis. What’s more, there have been 343 deaths in the past 24 hours.

The Wall Street Journal piece notes that more than 3,300 peo­ple from coun­tries in­clud­ing Italy, Iran and Spain had died from the new coro­n­avirus as of early Mon­day, com­pared with around 3,200 in China, ac­cord­ing to fig­ures com­piled by Johns Hop­kins Uni­ver­sity.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia. The worldwide outbreak has sickened more than 156,000 people and left more than 5,800 dead. The death toll in the United States is more than 50, while infections neared 3,000 across 49 states and the District of Columbia.

The vast majority of people recover. According to the World Health Organization, people with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while those with more severe illness may take three weeks to six weeks to recover.
