55. What was seen with SARS was that people that required hospitalization

started to die off 5 years later.

What I am afraid of with SAR-COV-2 is that it puts a marker in people that it infects. Scientists believe that immunity lasts only 2-3 months, so sans a cure or a vaccine, SARS-COV-2 can technically reinfect a person and pick up from where it left off. Some of the earliest cases of people getting sick and surviving were in China, but that is not a good observation area because China locked down tight as a drum and still reacts vigorously to infection spikes, plus China is secretive. Whether previously sick people that survive the first infection from the virus get it again and die in places like Italy or Spain is worth watching.
