A coronary virus patient says the worst part is a ‘debilitating cough’ That means about 23 percent of diagnosed coronavirus patients have recovered from the illness.

However, the true figure is likely to be much higher because some countries only test coronary virus patients who need hospital treatment.

Up to 80 per cent of the virus cases are thought to be mild enough to treat at home, meaning they are not counted among the totals of infection or recovery.

The country with the most recoveries is China, with 77,678 people recovering from the virus, followed by Spain, Germany and Iran.

Keeping up with the recovery, China this week managed to relieve the epicenter of Wuhan, 77 days after it went into strict lock-up.

People who have been certified healthy are now allowed to come and go, although temperature checks and home visits by doctors are carried out to insure that there is no second wave of infection.

Europe’s nations are also carefully plotting their routes out of lockdown, amid signs that the worst case of any region of the world could be easing there.

Highlighting the difficulties, French epidemiologist Jean-Francois Delfraissy said: ‘To end the addiction, we are not going to go black; we’re going to go from black to gray. ‘

But politicians and health officials are also warning that while deaths, hospital admissions and new infections may be leveling in places like Italy and Spain, the crisis is far from over and a second wave could hit if countries disappointing their guards too soon.

New York governor Andrew Cuomo said: ‘We are flattening the curve because we are rigorous about social distance. But it’s not a time to be complacent. It’s not time to do anything different than we’ve been doing. ‘

In a sharp reminder of the danger, New York state has recorded its highest one-day increase in deaths, 779, for an overall death toll of more than 6,000.

In China, the lock-up of Wuhan, the city where the global pandemic began, has been lifted after 76 days.

A California coronavirus patient says it hurts breathing in when you have the virus. Wuhan residents will have to use a smartphone app that shows they are healthy and that they have not had recent contact with anyone who has been confirmed with the virus.

Even then, schools remain closed, people are still being checked for temperatures when entering buildings, and masks are strongly encouraged.

In the US, with around 13,000 deaths and 400,000 infections, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is considering changing self-isolation guidelines to make it easier for those exposed to someone with ‘ the virus returns to work if they have no symptoms.

Under the proposed guidelines, aimed at workers in critical areas, such people would be allowed to return to work if they take their temperature twice a day and wear a mask.

Dr Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, said the US government had been working on plans to eventually reopen the country and restart the economy amid ‘glimmers of hope’ that social isolation worked to stop the virus from spread.

He told Fox News: ‘That doesn’t mean we’re going to do it right now. But it does mean we need to be prepared to ease into that. And there’s a lot of activity going on. ‘

The US is seeing growing hot spots in places like Chicago, Detroit, Colorado and Pennsylvania. The New York metropolitan area, which includes northern New Jersey, Long Island and lower Connecticut, accounts for about half of all virus deaths in the US.

In Europe, Italy’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte is expected in the coming days to announce how long the country’s lockdown will remain in place amid expectations that some restrictions may be eased. The discussions first focus on opening up more of the country’s industries.  In Italy, this also involves including issuing certificates of immunity.

Italy, the hardest hit country, recorded its largest one-day jump in people counted as recovered and had its smallest one-day increase in deaths in more than a month. Nearly 18,000 have died there.

In Spain, which has more than 14,000 deaths, budget minister Maria Jesus Montero said Spaniards will gradually restore their ‘normal life’ from April 26 onwards but warned that the lock-down will ‘de-intensify’ right to avoid and return to the contagion ‘.

The government has so far been tight-lipped about what measures might be in place once the captivity is relaxed, stressing that it will be determined by experts.

French authorities have also started openly talking about planning for the end of labor which is currently due to end on April 15, without giving specific details. The virus has claimed more than 10,000 lives in France.

Mr Delfraissy, who leads the scientific advice advising the president, said three things are necessary for people to start leaving home regularly: intensive care beds need to be released; the spread of the virus must slow down; and multiple tests are needed to check whether people are or have been infected and to track them. He said the French will also need to adopt the practice of wearing masks outside.

The European Union raised privacy concerns over mobile virus tracking apps as individual governments developed digital tools for exiting the crisis. The apps use smartphone location data to monitor the movement of virus carriers under quarantine – a technology the EU said raises questions about ‘fundamental rights and freedoms’.

The desire to get back to normal is driven in part by the damage to world economies.

The Bank of France said the French economy had started a recession, with an estimated 6% decline in the first quarter compared to the previous three months, while Germany, Europe’s economic powerhouse, is also facing a deep recession.

Japan, the world’s third-largest economy, could contract 25% ever this quarter, the highest since gross domestic product began to be tracked in 1955.

Worldwide, more than 1.4 million people have been confirmed infected and more than 80,000 have died, according to Johns Hopkins University. Actual numbers are almost certainly much higher, due to limited testing, various rules for counting the dead and deliberate underreporting by some governments.
