    Not quite sure what recovered means. If 5.6 million have recovered out of a total of 10.4 million world wide does that mean the difference (minus death of course) are hospitalized or what?

    Still in recovery - so could be either statistic until recovered (or dead)?

    I guess it means the rest are still considered to be sick.

    There's a lot of vagueness in regards to the terms and statistics being used in reference to the pandemic and aspects thereof.

    For that matter, there doesn't seem to be any definite agreement about what qualifies someone as "recovered".

    I don't find "recovered" to be meaningful because of that vagueness.

    On the Minnesota DHS site, they list people no longer in isolation. I wonder if this is what is meant by recovered?

    News just in. The virus might not be "a little flu" after all.

    Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro tests positive for coronavirus

    "Bolsonaro, 65, has repeatedly trivialized the pandemic and flouted social distancing, even as Brazil became the second-worst-hit country after the United States, with more than 65,000 deaths and 1.6m confirmed cases."
