COVID-19 has the potential to be fatal, with a nearly four percent mortality rate in the United States as of writing, according to the CDC. That may not seem like a big percentage, but keep in mind that if everyone in t he United State got coronavirus, based on current rates, there would be 12,799,800 deaths.
That's not to say every case is a worst scenario. Those who have coronavirus can have no symptoms to very mild symptoms. Still, you never know who may have a preexisting condition that may make fighting COVID-19 extremely difficult or impossible for them.
