The world has been offered a ‘glimmer of hope’ as the number of reported recovered cases reaches 604,606 globally.
Is the number of people that have recovered from the virus a sign that global measures are beginning to take effect?
As of 19th of April over 600,000 people have now recovered from COVID-19. Currently, the total number of recovered cases in the UK is unknown and not included within figures released by Government.
The number of recovered victims could be closer to 700,000 if the UK Government were to publish figures of the recovered cases.
The figure of 604,606 represents 79% of the worlds closed cases, with 21% registered as deaths; a total of 161,196 have now died from COVID-19 worldwide.
While the amount of deaths has been covered relentlessly in the UK media, it seems that the recovered cases are being neglected.
Breaking News Today feels it is critical to report on the positives as well as the negatives to give a balanced approach to reporting on the pandemic.

Why is Germany doing better than the UK in handling COVID-19?
Germany is taking the lead with a total of 88,000 recovered from Coronavirus, Germany also has one of the lowest mortality rates in Europe hovering around 3%.
The UK’s current mortality rate around 10% higher at 13.% it raises some serious questions about the UK’s approach to Coronavirus.
It seems to be pretty apparent that more testing is the key to lowering the number of deaths caused by the virus.
Germany has tested a total of 1,728,357 people whereas the UK only 460,437 have been tested for COVID-19.
Could this dramatic lack of tests be the reason UK citizens are dying at an increased rate compared to German citizens?
