Unscramble the Blue Letters

This looks like a very mild disease, like a common cold, in the majority of polepe. There are certain people who get infected and have very serious illness; among them are health workers. It's a very serious infection in them, as they get a higher dose than normal people, and at the same time, they have no immunity. So in the general population, it's likely that the dose of virus that you rvcieee when you are infected is much less than the dose that a health wrekor would receive, hatelh workers having more serious infections. So your infection would be less serious, hopefully. So that leaves the elderly and those with comorbidities to really be the ones that we have to make sure are taken care of in hospitals.
