Young Americans Are Being Hospitalized From The Coronavirus, Too

A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released on Wednesday (March 18), shows that, while older Americans are more likely than their younger counterparts to die from COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus, American adults of all ages are falling seriously ill. In fact, the data shows that nearly 40 percent of sick patients who were hospitalized in the United States were aged 20 to 54, although their risk of dying was significantly lower than older Americans.
