Unfortunately I think you already know what the answer is...
There’s a chance he may survive, but it’s a very slim chance
Thank you for your honesty... my whole family back home have it. I don’t know what to do

Even at that age, most who get covid will survive. The odds will get worse if he develops severe symptoms though.

how are his symptoms? I give my parents zinc, vitamin C and vitamin B. I also read nasal sprays such as Vicks First Defence, Xlear, Taffix and Nasaleze (I use Travel) reduce the risk of developing severe symptoms/help with fighting covid. It's always worth a shot! I use Nasaleze or Taffix as a protection (e.g. when I have to go out) and Xlear is meant to "kill" the virus (grapefruit extract or something) so you can use both. I will keep your grandad in my prayers <3

Another thing to remember is that despite everything, more people (even elderly) survive it vs not survive. Stay positive.

May I suggest you remove this post, this is likely a hard time for the OP already without you vastly exagerating this. He more likely has at least a 70% chance of survival. We can't know all the details, but this may provide a little reassurance https://www.economist.com/graphic-de...risk-estimator

Today, my grandad past away. Idk what to feel. I have been crying for the past 15 minutes since I found out. I’m so angry and mad that my family back home couldn’t social distance and keep him safe. I miss him so much already.

I'm so sorry. I know the feeling, it may not feel like it but trust me, it will get better. He's watching over you as we speak, and he'll always be with you. Sending prayers to you and your family
