"I feel great," he said. "I've never had a cough, never had shortness of breath, never had chills, never had the classic symptoms." 

Wentworth, in contrast, posted on Instagram at the time of her diagnosis that she had "never been sicker," and that her symptoms were "pure misery." 

According to a Johns Hopkins University tracker, the U.S. has reported more than 550,000 positive cases of the new virus. More than 41,000 have recovered.
