Over 370,000 people have survived COVID-19. Here’s what we know about recovery
Science Alert:  Most people who get the coronavirus recover. More than 372,000 such cases have been documented worldwide.
 “Eventually, if all goes well, your immune system will completely destroy all of the virus in your system,” Tom Duszynski, director of epidemiology education at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, wrote in The Conversation. “A person who was infected with and survived a virus with no long-term health effects or disabilities has ‘recovered’.”
 Still, many uncertainties remain: It’s not yet clear how many people have recovered, how the illness will affect them in the long run, or how long they will be immune. Here’s everything we know about the people who have recovered from COVID-19.  Although more than 372,000 people who had the coronavirus had recovered worldwide, according to a Johns Hopkins University database, the true number is probably far higher than that.
 While Johns Hopkins tracks case counts and death tolls reported by each county and region across the globe, data on recoveries is less precise.
Many counties, states, territories, and regions don’t report how many of their residents have recovered.
“Recovered cases outside China are country-level estimates based on local media reports and may be substantially lower than the true number,” Douglas Donovan, a spokesman for the university, told CNN.
Plus, due to limited testing availability in some countries, including the US, the most severe cases are prioritised for official diagnoses. People who have mild symptoms, or none at all, are less likely to get tested – if they even seek testing in the first place. That means that many mild infections are not included in the count of total cases or recoveries.
