Covid-19: is it possible to predict how sick someone could get?

Description

Nine months in, and with over 30 million people having been infected with Covid-19, we now know some of the main factors that put people at higher risk of a severe case of the disease, such as age and having other health problems.

Nicola Davis takes a look at the researchers attempting to rapidly work out how to predict who is going to get very sick.
