Most people develop only mild symptoms. But some people, usually those with other medical complications, may develop more severe symptoms, including pneumonia.
Q: Who is at highest risk for getting very sick from COVID-19?People at higher risk include:
- People 60 and older.
- People with underlying health conditions such as heart or lung disease.
- People who have weakened immune systems.
- People who are pregnant.
People at higher risk of severe illness should stay home and away from large groups of people as much as possible. The CDC has a more comprehensive listing of people at higher risk which can be found here https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/specific-groups/people-at-higher-risk.html
