In NSW, recovery status for COVID-19 is assessed at 3 weeks after the onset of illness by interviewing the case. Cases reporting resolution of all COVID-19 symptoms are considered to have recovered. The time an individual takes to recover is dependent on many factors including age and other underlying health conditions. Cases who have been infected earlier in the outbreak have had more time to recover than cases who developed symptoms 3 weeks ago. To date, 2,164 are known to have recovered.
