What are the odds of dying from COVID-19 compared to other coronaviruses? This is a common question I get asked both from my patients as well as comments on my YouTube videos. The odds of dying from COVID-19 have been well established but what about for other coronaviruses. There are 7 different human coronaviruses some of which cause the common cold and others have caused outbreaks such as MERS, SARS and of course COVID-19. I will review the current knowledge on these coronaviruses and compare the current COVID-19 pandemic with other coronavirus infections. Does infection from one coronavirus protect you against others? SARS-CoV-2-specific T cell immunity in cases of COVID-19 and SARS, and uninfected controls
