At this point, an important Hinweis: The data situation is highly dynamic. The official figures of the German authorities on the infections are currently partly different. This is due to the reporting chains. Read more about why there are so many different numbers here.
Data basis for the number of people who have recovered: The criterion for reporting "recovered" is the date the case was reported, if it was more than 14 days ago. In addition, the patients listed in this category are neither in treatment in a hospital nor deceased. These criteria are also applied by the Robert Koch Institute.

Where the name Covid-19 comes from?
Diseases are caused by viruses, among other things. For example, the HI virus is responsible for the AIDS disease. Sars-CoV-1 is the causative agent of severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars). The lung disease caused by Sars-CoV-2 is called "coronavirus disease 2019," or covid-19 for short. It has this official name on 11. February received from the World Health Organization.
It was important to WHO that the name not be stigmatizing. In the past, it was not uncommon to name diseases after countries or regions. Also, in the context of Covid-19, there have been proposals to name the disease "Wuhan respiratory syndrome coronavirus" (WRS-CoV) – similar to Mers-Cov, i.e., the "Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus".
However, WHO has since agreed that naming human diseases should not have an unnecessary impact on, for example, trade and tourism, nor should it offend ethnic, social or other groups.
