Aged people are far more prone to COVID-19 complications

Advance age seems to be the most important factor determining the death rate due to COVID-19

Other common conditions that may increase the chance of death due to COVID-19 include:

Cardiovascular disease: >11 folds higher death rate than the general public
Diabetes = >8 folds higher death rate than the general public
Chronic respiratory disease = 7 folds higher death rate than the general public
Hypertension = >6 folds higher death rate than the general public
Cancer >6 fold higher death rate.

Cupper supplements may help against COVID-19

While vitamins and supplements might not help in reducing the chance of getting COVID-19, according to Dr. Walter Willett, a professor at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, there is some reason to hypothesize that some vitamins and supplements could reduce the risk and severity of COVID-19 because of benefits seen for other viral or respiratory disease.

The number of people that one person with COVID-19 with no social distancing or quarantine can indirectly infect in a month is ~244

There is simple math behind the power of social distancing.

Generally, each COVID-19 patient can infect ~2.5 others. There are ~5 days between one infection and next, so each infected person can infect 244 others in a month.

If by practicing social distancing, we reduce the transmission by half, so each person infects 1.25 others, we'd expect only 4 more cases.
