According to the U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams, "Almost all people will recover. 98% to 99% of people will recover and people need to know that."
Since the beginning of this whole thing the CDC has been saying older Americans, especially those with underlying health conditions, remain at the highest risk.
That being said, Dr. Adams said: "Social distancing and mitigation, they're not to protect the 30-year-old or the 20-year-old from getting Coronavirus.They're to protect your Nana. They're to protect your Granddad. They're to protect the people who you love in your life and we need your help."
As testing for the Coronavirus increases, experts say the vast majority are coming back negative. They also reiterate that the steps being taken now to cut down on community spread will help flatten the curve of infection.
