The number of cases of infection exceeded 80,750.

"The state health committee received from 31 provinces (areas, cities of central subordination) information about 80,754 confirmed cases of infection with the new type of coronavirus, including 17,721 people currently sick (4,794 in serious condition), 59,897 people were discharged from hospitals, 3,136 died," the state health committee said Tuesday said.


However, recently, the number of people recovered from the infection has also increased considerably. According to John Hopkins University, more than 50,000 people infected globally (with a majority chunk being in China) have managed to recover from the COVID-19. In Iran, where a total of 2,922 cases surfaced, 552 from them have successfully recovered.

In the US, with around 148 confirmed cases, 15 have managed to recover. Even in places where coronavirus had a strong presence -- places like South Korea, Singapore around 88 people and 78 people respectively have successfully recovered from COVID-19. Even in India, three people from Kerela who were the first reported cases of coronavirus have successfully recovered.

Also, there is no uniformity in the way the patients have recovered. It is different with each affected. Some have managed to recover in just 9 days from the detection of the virus while some have been in quarantine for a month in order to fully recover. But the good news is that people are surely recovering.

Dr Anthony Fauci, Directory from National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in a statement on Saturday that people who don’t suffer from underlying conditions and are not elderly are recovering well. He added, "However, every once in a while you’re going to see a 25-year-old person, who looks otherwise well, that’s going to get seriously ill. But the vast majority of people who get into trouble do have these underlying conditions."
