Fear of Death

The mortality rate for Covid-19 is quite low, but it is still a crap shoot. Certain factors make people more likely to die from the virus, but there is no guarantee that anyone who gets it will survive.

Lots of people are expressing their fear of death as a result of the pandemic right now.
