Most people recover from Covid-19, which is why it is difficult to determine exactly how many people are cured. Most people with Covid-19 have mild illnesses and are able to recover at home without medical care, while severe cases often receive supportive care in the hospital, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Although there have been regional, national and global data on confirmed cases and deaths, not much has been reported about recovery.
Johns Hopkins University, one of the few institutions to follow up on the cases, did so after its data collection on Covid-19 issues was first made public in an online panel in January, Douglas Donovan , a university spokesman in Baltimore, said in an email.
As of Saturday, more than 223,000 people worldwide have recovered from Covid-19, according to data from the Johns Hopkins University dashboard. The current figure is likely to be higher as the data only covers confirmed cases.
