    because everyone is different

    By definition, everyone is different.  Your question is like asking why some people can drown, even though they know how to swim.  Were they in a 5-gallon bucket or 12 miles out to sea? How long were they under water?  What help was available?

    No one has a good answer for this yet. This is a "novel" virus, meaning there is no immunity to it--but some people don't get bad symptoms, and some do. The mechanism of this is not known yet and research depends on accurate information, which hasn't really been something we have seen yet. Researchers are working like crazy to figure it out.

    We'll know more after research is complete.

    There are easily 3 known factors:

    1. Everyday everybody gets exposed to various combinations of viruses and bacteria, and how those interact vary.

    2. Not everybody takes in the same vitamins and minerals that feed your immune system.

    3. We aren't clones, we are not biologically identical, and our bodies don't react identically to defend from a virus either as quickly or with the same vigor.

    The virus doesn't care about underlying conditions.  Sometimes, people with underlying conditions have been under a doctor's care and are therefore more capable of fighting off the virus.  The opposite is also true.  Someone withOUT underlying conditions may or may not be able to fight off the virus in the long run.

    If the virologists or researchers  knew the answer they would be wiser than Solomon.

    One factor can be "load" of the virus they take on board. That is the number of virus cells and their strength. It is possible for some people to be infected by weaker or stronger cells of the virus or a fewer or greater number of cells. The body can handle the weaker or few number of cells better than the stronger or greater number of virus cells. 

    .

    Virus cells that are outside of the body lose their strength over time also the number of cells tend to be more concentrated from an infected person's cough as compared to their normal breath.

    There are underlying conditions they may not know about like a weak immune system.

    But, it's a very serious thing for everyone.

      Axiomatic. What else could it possibly be?
