With the vaccination efforts now increasing, it's important to see the top 10 countries with the highest COVID-19 recoveries to see the progress in the fight against the pandemic.
It's also worth noting that although these are recovery numbers, meaning the active infections could still be quite overwhelming for some countries.
While the world is slowly rolling out its vaccination efforts, it's worth seeing just how these countries were able to reach high recovery rates.
The following data was taken from Statista.
The data was taken from the numbers as of July 23, 2021. It is also important to note that this is not percentage-wise, and solely based on recovery numbers and not recovery to population numbers.

In the United States, it was confirmed that 40% of the cases actually came from just 3 states. The hotspots for the cases are located in Florida, Missouri, and Texas.
Dr. Fauci on COVID-19 Deaths
According to the article by CNBC, in the US, about 99.5% of COVID-19 deaths reportedly come from unvaccinated people and Dr. Fauci noted that it is "a statistic that speaks for itself."
Despite the new surge in cases, Fauci said that he does not believe the United States officials will renew calls for the whole nationwide mask mandate due to there being "a lot of pushback on that."
It was noted that local counties and private businesses are capable of choosing to enforce mask mandates as the new delta variant is still continuing its spread in unvaccinated pockets of the whole country.
As of the moment, almost ⅔ of the counties in the US have vaccinated just less than 40% of their total residents.
Colleges and Universities on Vaccine Requirements
It was also noted that colleges and universities have also started taking the question of mandating vaccines to court.
The Indiana University has just recently gotten the green light coming from a federal judge for them to require vaccines for the students that will be attending the fall semester.
Fauci said that he does not see lockdowns coming back any time soon, noting that he just does not see that on the horizon as of the moment.
Furthermore, Fauci noted that what he sees is increased testing as well as increased local mandates and even a big push to get people fully vaccinated.
The vaccine efforts are now going into the "knock on doors" method to get more Americans to receive COVID-19 shots.
