Posted on 03/22/2020 11:02:32 AM PDT by Helicondelta
As the coronavirus continues to spread, young Americans are being warned not to take the pandemic lightly.
A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveals that younger adults are also at risk of becoming very sick from COVID-19.
While Americans aged 80 and older have a higher risk of dying from the virus, a significant portion of those hospitalized for the illness were younger, the study found.
Of 508 patients hospitalized between February 12 and March 16, 38% were aged 20 to 54.
The report also found that 47% of 121 patients who were taken to intensive care units were under the age of 65.
Additionally, 20% of those hospitalized and 12% of those in intensive care were ages 20 to 44, essentially the range of the millennial generation.

OK so you likely won’t die if you’re young and healthy.
But ending up in ICU with pneumonia kinda sucks an if it’s bad enough it can leave a lasting impression on your lungs.
I’ve had pneumonia twice. It’s a beast.
I’d rather spend a week with my ex than get it again
Better late than never.
The initial platitudes offered by the “don’t panic” people saying it’s only a threat to old people, helped spread this disease. They ignored that it could be serious for young people and the threat of young people spreading it.
It’s been causing Cytokine storms in younger people. That’s what killed during the 1918 Spanish Flu.
BS. More scaremongering from our alarmist scientists.
This is the medias latest disinformation campaign which is to now make it like this is a deadly virus for young people, which it most clearly is not.
Maybe Dr. Fauci is not to be trusted.
Fauci knew what had to be done after 2009, and it didn’t get done.
Great idea getting out the message “it’s just old people, lol” over and over.
Florida College Students Test Positive for Coronavirus After Spring Break Trip
“It seems some viral infection pandemics are more equal than others. At least when it comes to burning a vibrant Trump economy to the ground.
“In September 2009, after millions had become infected with the H1N1 influenza and thousands had died, some of whom were young people and children, a relaxed and unalarmed Dr. Anthony Fauci told an interviewer that people just need “to use good judgment.”
Florida will be our Italy.
Dr. Fouci compares CV19 to Sars, Flu, and H1N1 swine flu.
WuFlu will kill more jobs for young people than young people.
Obama had 7 years to make the necessary changes based on lessons learned in 2009, and it didn’t get done.
Im 51 years old and theres no way I consider myself a young adult. I know for a fact that if a 20-year-old and I receive the same beat down by a pack of thugs I would take a month to recover and in two days the 20-year-old would be walking around, drinking beer, and trying to pick up girls.
Fauci loves Hillary. He said it in an email.
“Please tell the secretary that I love her more than ever”
How can we trust Fauci?
He loves Hillary.
What does that tell us about how he feels about Trump?
You think Fauci might want to tank the economy?
My son says he sees many of them now driving down to Mexico on their “time off”.
“Obama had 7 years to make the necessary changes based on lessons learned in 2009, and it didnt get done.”
Because it wasn’t what they were saying it was.
What we’re really dealing with here, then and now, is a bunch of communists and globalists who want to use fear of disease as a way to consolidate their power over us.
