Mis-conception what the term "mild" meant
Severe: needing machine-assisted breathing.
Critical: involve respiratory failure or multi-organ failure.
In layman terms:
Mild is anything from feeling 100% up to super painful but not painful enough to be in the hospital to be pumped oxygen.
Severe means you need oxygen and ventilators
Critical means you are about to die and even if you get out of this, you definitely will have major body damage (organs)
I think a bunch of people misunderstood the term "mild" when used for the coronavirus.
When people hear "mild" they think, "oh a few coughs for a day or 2 and then you are good."
In reality, you are bedridden for the entire 2 weeks or 14 days and you are in pain for that whole time.
Thus, they hear oh wow only 0.1% of people under 60 die!! When in reality, if you get it, you are 20% chance going to be hospitalized regardless of age and if you are not hospitalized, there is a good chance you are in pain for 2 weeks.
Cliff Notes: Mild is really not mild like you think it is.
