COVID–19 Symptoms

COVID-19 affects different people in different ways. Most infected people will develop mild to moderate illness and recover without hospitalization.

Older people (60+ years of age, or 50+ for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples) are more susceptible to getting sick with COVID-19. The risk of serious illnes, and death, increases with age, particularly those who have chronic illnesses or who may have a weakened immune system.
