Family medicine doctor at Margaret Mary Health, John Gryspreerdt, talks about why viral load matters when it comes to COVID-19. He explains that if you are exposed to a very small amount of the virus, you may only experience mild symptoms of the coronavirus. However, if you come into contact with a large amount of the virus, then you have a much greater risk of having a more severe infection. Because of this, social distancing remains very important in reducing the spread of COVID-19.
