More than 300,000 across the world have now recovered after getting sick from the coronavirus, according to the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus database, while the number of those infected grew to just under 1.5 million late Tuesday. The database also says that the U.S. now has 300,054 cases, with 21,763 recovered, Newsweek reports, while 12,893 people have died. Officials hope that antibodies from the blood of those who've recovered from the disease can be used on new patients to attack the virus; however, the FDA warns that it's not yet clear if that will be an effective treatment.
