What is the reason the news media does not tell us the numbers of people who got well after having covid-19?

Update:

they keep telling us about those who are additionally sick, but after many have been sick and not died we are not told those number,,, they want fear to run through our hearts so we surrender to the big brother  -- lets hear of the healthy 

Update 2:

yet I agree quackermaid- but then why does the news have stupid feel good crap about online music as a cure for staying home problems ... If I am a plumber I do not see how I can do plumbing on line, or electricians or most of the real work. I cannot go another month let alone 18 months with no real work.

    A plane landing safely isn't news. A plane crashing is.

    incredible!   The answers here prove how much trouble we are in. There is no way to ever get all the stats unless you forced every American to be tested...Folks who were infected but showed no symptoms, or had mild symptoms and got over it in one day, are likely in the millions;'  in research, the way to improve the stats is done thru Brandon samplings. Then using known stats and educated guessing, you guesstimate and come up with a number to plug into your formula. but with no test kits to spare, yu cant waste them on random testing but use them on folks with nasty symptoms. i have an idea but they won't listen...the Red Cross advertised for blood donors, right?  people who were infected but no or little symptoms will have antibodies in their blood. why not take each donor's blood and look for the antibodies? they have the equipment? But there are no media conspiracy etc...  and now they have spare test kits showing up they could o random spot checks..but, would u volunteer to be tested?

    Because the news media wants everyone to be very afraid of death and beg the government for help.

    same reason they are not testing the masses.  If the masses got an "all clear" before authorities made sure the economy was completely wrecked it would ruin their plans

    The figures are produced, so it is an editorial decision not to use them.

    There is no way to know as they only know who tests positive, who is in the hospital and who died.   They have no time to go door to door and find out who was sick at home and got better without being tested or going to the hospital.

    Those number are all over the place. CNN has links to map that show the number of cases, the number of deaths, and the number of recovered. Here's one link- https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html

    Here in Canada we are told daily the number of  confirmed cases, the number who no longer have Covid-19, the number who died.  In addition we are also told the number of cases in each province and territory.

    the media just wants to pump the situation into the biggest story of the century and keep it going as long as possible ... thats what they do .. they arnt there to 'inform you' with accurate unbiased information thats bullsht .. they want your undivided attention and ratings, they'll make sht up and skew it whatever it takes to make that happen ..
