Over One Million People Across the World Have Now Recovered From Coronavirus by katty : May 01, 2020, 02:51:22 PM
More than one million people infected with coronavirus across the world have now recovered, according to figures.

Data compiled by Johns Hopkins University - which has tracked the pandemic since it began - shows the milestone was hit last night.

More than 3million people have been infected with the virus worldwide, and around 230,000 people have died - meaning there has now been around four times more recoveries than deaths.

Statistics show the US has seen more than 153,000 people recover from the deadly illness, followed by Germany (123,000) and Spain (112,000).

However, the true number of infected patients who have recovered could potentially be millions more because the true size of the pandemic remains a mystery.

Dozens of countries around the world, including the UK, are clueless as to how many people have really been infected because of a lack of testing.

The UK does not even keep a daily track of how many patients have recovered from COVID-19.

For example, the most recent toll given by officials for how many infected Brits have recovered is just 859 out of 171,253 cases.

Britain's lack of data suggests that only around 0.5 per cent of patients recover - but that is wildly inaccurate.

Germany, praised for its robust testing regime, has a recovery rate of around 75 per cent, according to the Johns Hopkins website.

Spain's recovery rate is around 52 per cent, while it is closer to 36 per cent in Italy and 30 per cent in France.

Using these percentages, it would suggest that between 50,000 and 130,000 Brits have really recovered.

But because estimates of the outbreak suggest millions of Brits have actually been infected, the true number could well be a seven-figure number. 

It comes after it was revealed yesterday that recoveries from the coronavirus in the US are now double the number of total deaths.

At least 128,141 Americans had won their fight against COVID-19 as of last night. In comparison, the death toll was 62,547.

It offers hope for the US, which reports five-figure numbers when it comes to new cases per day - five times as many as China did during its peak. 

To be considered recovered, a patient must have no fever without the help of drugs for 72 hours, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Additionally, the person must also show improvement in his or her respiratory health and have two negative tests results taken at least 24 hours apart.

The current numbers are a far cry from the week of March 16 to 22 when 472 people died and 668 had recovered, only about a 41 per cent difference.

But while deaths are increasing exponentially week over week, recoveries are rising at a faster rate.
