Recovering from COVID depends partly on whether you’re vaccinated.
If you’re vaccinated, you tend to get a very mild illness, recovering is pretty quickly. So even if you’ve got quite a few symptoms, you tend to be much better in about a week. And it looks as though the incidence of long COVID is pretty low.
Therefore, most people who are vaccinated and get COVID-19 are better and recovering within a few days.
