Even if we had solid statistics for Covid-19, which we don't yet have
in a report from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention that included approximately 44,500 confirmed infections with an estimation of disease severity : Mild (no or mild pneumonia) was reported in 81 percent.
Only one was able to get the test due to the limited availability. He tested positive and is currently in the hospital and may die. He is on a ventilator. My husband has been sick for over 2 weeks. Cannot get test because he doesn't have a fever. Symptoms are very different than the flu or a cold. Extreme weakness, dry cough, on and off chills, no appetite, lack of taste and smell, rapid weight loss and extreme shortness of breath.
The scientists and media are reporting statistics based on those who were tested
But in line with other studies, the researchers found that the majority of fatalities are among adults who were age 80 or older.
“There might be outlying cases that get a lot of media attention, but our analysis very clearly shows that at aged 50 and over, hospitalization is much more likely than in those under 50, and a greater proportion of cases are likely to be fatal,” Azra Ghani, a professor at Imperial College London and an author of the study, said in a statement.
Coronavirus death rate much lower than previously reported, study says
my friend, who was hospitalized. is 85. I know your point, he is old.
My doctor said it is pretty typical for corona to last weeks and there really is no treatment unless you are dying so it is best to stay home.

Not sure about the lack of taste and smell though, seems like a fairly unique symptom and not something other Covid-19 patients are describing.

my friend, who was hospitalized. is 85. I know your point, he is old. But a healthy 85 before he got sick. My husband is 59 and very healthy no preexisting.

I'm requesting nebulized Heparin and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) along with Leronlimab should that not work.
I plan on being as demanding as my lungs allow.
