The areas of the world that have yet to see large swaths of their populations infected with COVID-19 are looking to places like China and South Korea, which have vastly more experience with the virus, to learn all they can about the disease.
While more nearly 5,000 people are known to have died from the virus, more than 70,000 have recovered. However, as researchers in Hong Kong have found, some of the effects of the novel coronavirus may be permanent.
The city has only seen 131 confirmed cases, with three fatalities so far. After the first wave of patients was released, doctors with the Hong Kong Health Authority followed up with 12 of them to see how they were doing.
