Symptoms can vary widely from one infection to the next. Possible explanations include the dose of virus at the time of infection, the particular strain of COVID virus, and simply random luck. But this is entirely normal and nothing to worry about unless you develop severe symptoms, like bad cough, chest pain, or shortness of breath. See a doctor ASAP if any of these symptoms appear. Good luck.
