What are the chances of getting a virus

Since so far there have not been any virus that can attack a Mac, I would to say very slim.
There are other forms of malware, most of which AV software is incapable of detecting, you will need to be careful of them. These tend to use offers that sound too good to be true in an attempt to get you to give them your password to allow them to install themselves on your Mac.
So if you stay away from unsafe site, such as torrent, and don't fall for promises that you just know are false you will be safe.
