I am hearing this a lot. By the time you start to have symptoms, get tested and get the results back you are already on a ventilator or worse, dead.
Generally this is only true of those susceptible, which is still a fairly small percentage. Doesn't make any less sad or scary but everyone who shows symptoms does not die.

Death isn't the only negative outcome of the virus. Being very ill for a couple of weeks, and possibly having temporary or permanent lung damage would be no picnic and can happen to even the healthy and young. People look at the death rates and think that this isn't as big a deal as people are making it out to be.
