Did you know that many

people greatly overestimate

the risks of COVID-19?

Couple in Nature

We’ve learned a lot over the last year:

  1. Transmission from surfaces is very rare, less than 1 in 10,000.

  2. Outdoor transmission is very rare.

  3. People who do not have symptoms rarely transmit COVID-19, with an average of less than 1 transmission out of 100 in the same household. The rate of transmission would be even lower in passing interactions in public.

  4. COVID-19 severity is age dependent.There is a >99% survival rate for people under age 70.

  5. COVID-19 is less severe and deadly for children and young people than influenza.
