COVID-19 is powerfully deadly in some but mild in others. In an article by Sarah Kaplan, William Wan and Joel Achenbach of The Washington Post, “Respiratory viruses tend to infect and replicate in two places: in the nose and throat, where they are highly contagious, or lower in the lungs, where they spread less easily but are much more deadly.” If you are sick and worried about COVID-19, you may call DOH Hotlines before rushing to the hospital.

Keep safe and healthy.
