How long does it take to recover from COVID-19? | NPR News

While the positive cases of the coronavirus continue to rise around the globe, the number of those who have recovered has shot up as well. Many are now wondering how long it actually takes to recover, and when are you no longer contagious? Several doctors who contracted the virus and have been fighting to quell it in other patients have spoken out on these concerns. Darren Klugman, a pediatric cardiologist, has said that most people will have mild to moderate flu-like symptoms that are usually centered around respiratory troubles. First, if you do have symptoms and you seem to recover, be aware that they can still come back. The CDC is recommending that you can come out of isolation after being fever free for at least 72 hours without medication, and at least seven days after the beginning of your symptoms.
