Just curious

How can I find out how many have recovered? I see how many have died, but no report on survivors. Why not?

[scared]That is scary. Died one day after the symptom appeared.

Not really, a person dies by gunshot and if they test positive, add that to the COVID-19 death tally. Even George Floyd tested positive, but we all know he didn't die from the virus.
