A person who contracts COVID-19 in their 70s has an 8 percent chance of dying, and a person in their 80s a nearly 15 percent chance of dying. The virus can be lethal in a variety of ways. Viral infections in the lungs can trigger an immune response so strong that it fatally damages the lungs.

It may be possible that people can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this isn’t thought to be the main way the virus spreads. Cleaning with products containing soap or detergent reduces germs on surfaces and objects by removing contaminants and may weaken or damage some of the virus particles, which decreases risk of infection from surfaces.

Other experts feel it is far more likely that once an individual has contracted COVID-19, they will not be able to get it again. “Coronaviruses aren’t new, they’ve been around for a long, long time and many species — not just humans — get them. So we know a fair amount about coronaviruses in general,” Gluckman said.

The coronavirus affects people differently. Some people have no symptoms at all and may not even know they are ill, even though they can transmit the coronavirus to others. If you have any of the following symptoms, call your doctor. He or she will say whether you need a test and recommend what you should do.

We have about 200 circulating respiratory viruses in the world, and it’s possible that SARS COV-2 will just become one of the many. However, through natural and vaccine-induced immunity, infections are likely to be mild and indistinguishable from other “common cold” coronavirus infections.

Does that mean I will get the virus too? A: It’s not 100% guaranteed that just because one person in the household gets the virus that everybody else is going to. That doesn’t mean it can’t or won’t happen, but it’s not universal that everybody is going to get sick when COVID-19 is in your house.
