One cannot stay alive after contracting COVID-19.

COVID-19 patients can prevent serious illness and fatality by using government and medically approved vaccines.

Several medical organizations and governing bodies have recognized the efficacy and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines against the virus. It is proven that COVID-19 vaccines can prevent one from severe illness and fatality due to the virus. The vaccines create antibodies that help fight the disease. Currently, there are three types of vaccines; mRNA, Vector, and Protein subunit.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, and Johson & Johnson (Jansen) vaccine for Emergency Use Authorization. The data presented clear evidence that the vaccines may efficiently prevent COVID-19. Clinical trials including thousands of people revealed that the vaccines are safe and effective at preventing COVID-19 infection. Millions of people worldwide have safely received these vaccines.

Even the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) noted that COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, and till now, have not found any patterns in the cause of death that would indicate a problem with the vaccines. However, a person could get infected between two vaccination as their immune system would be down for a few days after being jabbed. But there are a negligible amount of deaths due to the vaccine.

There are also cases of positive people who isolated at home after being tested positive and lived. The World Health Organization advises positive patients to self-isolate at home or maintain a 1-meter distance from others, to prevent transmission of the virus. The person must isolate themselves for at least ten days. If they experience severe symptoms of breathlessness, they must contact their doctor for advice.

Contracting COVID-19 is not necessarily fatal; it is important to wear a mask, social distance, and get vaccinated.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19, including symptoms, prevention, and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organization or your national healthcare authority.
