There is a lot of information that is confusing about covid 19 on the web and social media. Below is an excellent article from Yale, about the reality of Covid 19 infections from MDs who treat this disease every day. This is far different than the flu, but most people do well. The high risk factors of age, underlying medical issues, and immune issues put many at high risk and they should socially isolate and be safe. A typical mask does not keep you from being infected. It lessens the chance you will infect others. Be safe, wash your hands frequently and social distance. Wear a mask if you are in groups to protect others and those at high risk. Many people are asymptomatic carriers of the disease and can infect many others.
