Odds are you’ll be just fine

The CDC estimates that the overall rate of recovery from COVID-19 is as high as 99.74%. Now, remember we’re talking about the disease, not the virus. The vast vast portion (some estimates as high as more than 98%) of people who test positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus either have no symptoms or have only mild symptoms and recover just fine. In plain English, if you have the virus, the chance that you’re going to get sick is absurdly low. If you do happen to get sick and get diagnosed as having COVID-19, the chance that you’re going to die from it is also absurdly low. Now, go slip your mask on and enjoy your life in reclusion.
