This corona outbreak has changed everything. The health of every recovered one is not the same now. The time of recovery differs from person to person and how sick you became in the first place. Whereas some people will shrug off the illness quickly, some could suffer from long-lasting problems.
Corona infected person’s age, gender, and other health issues all increase the risk of becoming more seriously ill. If the person is receiving the invasive treatment that is taking longer to perform, that person’s recovery will likely take longer.
What if the person has only mild symptoms?
The main symptoms that people develop after getting infected from the Covid-19 are cough or fever. People could also seem to experience body aches, fatigue, sore throat, and headache. In the case of cough, it is initially dry, however, some people will eventually start coughing up mucus containing dead lung cells killed by the virus. Uh! This is harsh!
This kind of symptoms has been treating with bed rest, plenty of fluids, and pain relief such as paracetamol. Moreover, those with mild symptoms seems to make a better and speedy recovery. The fever settles in less than a week, however, the cough might linger.
The average recovery time of COVID-19’s patient, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) is two weeks.
What if the person has more serious symptoms?
For some people, COVID-19 becomes more serious and severe. It happens about seven to 10 days into the disease. Nonetheless, the transmutation can be swift. In severe cases, breathing becomes tough and the lungs get inflamed.
The reason behind it is that no matter how the body’s immune system is trying to fight back, the body experiences collateral damage during the process. Serious cases have been hospitalized for oxygen therapy. The recovery time would be two to eight weeks.

What if patients need intensive care?
According to the estimated reports, one person in 20 requires intensive care treatment. Therefore, this treatment could include being sedated and put on a ventilator.
From an intensive or critical care unit (ICU), it takes time to get recover. After showing a good sign of recovery, people are moved to a regular ward before going home. Doctors say that, after getting into any critical care, it can take 12 to 18 months to get back to normal.
In addition, long time spending in a hospital bed could lead to muscle mass loss. Therefore, The recovered patients still feel weak and their muscles will take time to build up again. In fact, some of the patients require physiotherapy to walk again.
Similarly, staying in an ICU for a long time and going through a lot, there’s also the possibility of delirium and other psychological disorders. Speaking precisely, it is not easy to generalize if the patients take a considerable period, potentially months, to recover.
We don’t know it! While some people go through relatively short periods in critical care, others are ventilated for weeks.
