Internal Medicine 27 years experience
Extremely low: Based on age only. It does increase with significant comorbidities and being deconditioned/ overweight/obese. Risk is higher for becoming an asymptomatic carrier and this is where prevention ( mask, distancing) makes a difference.
Dr. Heidi Fowler
Psychiatry 25 years experience
COVID 19: Unless you have an underlying health condition(s) that place you at increased risk, you are in a age group with a low mortality rate.
