    we can have fear, but we are afraid or we feel fear.  having fear is a lot less common to say than to be afraid. Aren't you afraid to let people into your home because of COVID?

    you could "grammatically" say "Don't you have fear to let people into your home because of COVID?" but it is an awkward structure.  Most people would not express it that way.  We are afraid or feel fear, rather than we have fear, usually.

    Basically, when it comes to feelings, we ARE afraid/scared/hungry/tired/excited or whatever, rather than we have fear/hunger/tiredness/excitement.  The person is the way they feel, not has that feeling.

    Distinctly incorrect. 

    "Doesn't Covid make you afraid to let people into your home?"

    The form 'Haven't you afraid?' does not exist.
