Does anyone know why on worldometer site showing UK recovered as n/a . First off it showed same number for days then went up slightly and now changed to n/a
Yet some have people have recovered from what you read so why are we not putting this ?? Anyone know ?

Any reporting of recovered is sketchy.

What's its recovered? Because people can feel the impacts of this for months. Perhaps more.

There would need to be an agreed concept of what recovered is.

If its mo longer contagious, that would require another test and doesnt mean you are back to pre covid health.

If its actually fully recovered and back to pre covid health, who is checking that?

Most people leave hospital and continue recovery at home.

I suspect the countries that are reporting it are doing an estimate. Someone has bene tested, come back positive and after X amount of days they havent bene in hospital or have left hospital.

The UK isn't reporting.
Italy considers someone recovered after 20 days with no fever and 2 consecutive negative swabs at least 72 hours apart.
Most countries who have been in the eye of the storm for a while release the figures. The UK isn't.
