The Division of Public Health has removed “Recoveries” from its statistical reporting on the COVID-19 data portal as this metric is no longer a true reflection of the number of persons that recovered from the disease. Cases considered recovered included only infected persons who reported to DPH that they had reached the end of their isolation period. It does not capture instances such as in long-term care and other congregate settings where patients are cleared by facility medical staff, not DPH. In addition, it does not include those who do not respond to, or complete, case investigation by contact tracers.
