Many more people may have had Covid-19 and recovered, but these were cases where the individual was not tested or did not report symptoms to health professionals; they may have had mild to severe symptoms thinking it a cold or flu and recovered at home. Below are statistics easily obtained when we did an internet search strictly on “numbers of recoveries from coronavirus.” These statistics were published prior to the mass release of vaccines.
Statistics on Recoveries
Coronavirus (Covid-19) cases and recoveries worldwide reported by three different statistics organizations globally: (for updates to those figures after 6 January 2021 use the links at the end of each report):
- As of January 6, 2021, there were almost 87 million global cases of COVID-19. Over 61 million people had recovered from the disease, while there had been almost 1.9 million deaths attributed to Covid-19 Full story: https://www.statista.com/statistics/1087466/covid19-cases-recoveries-deaths-worldwide/
- The United States recorded 9,100,880 Coronavirus Recovered since the epidemic began, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). In addition, United States reported 357,258 Coronavirus Deaths. January 2021 data; https://tradingeconomics.com/united-states/coronavirus-recovered

Recovered 61,221,133. https://virusncov.com/ (Compare: The most notorious plague episode in history, The Black Death, which swept across Europe and Asia in 1346, is estimated to have resulted in or contributed to the deaths of over 50 million people worldwide.)
Marilyn Singleton, MD, of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons writing on December 30, 2020 in the AAPS Newsletter (aapsonline.org) about stemming the tide of Covid-19 states: “Simply put, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Any risk of taking proper doses of vitamins and minerals is dwarfed by the risks associated with COVID. Useful vitamins and minerals include zinc (inhibits viral replication), vitamin D3 and vitamin C, and quercetin (to help drive zinc into the cells). Additionally, melatonin, a hormone found naturally in the body that regulates our sleep cycle, also has significant anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and mitochondrial protective effects.”
