CDC Warns Millennials to Get Serious

Washington, D.C. (Thursday, March 19, 2020) – As more stories show college students and other young adults partying and conducting their lives like business as usual, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is out with a new warning and information about the novel coronavirus.  The  stark new CDC data shows the number of cases is steadily rising among those under the age of 56.  According to the report released yesterday,  nearly 40 percent of  those sick enough to be in the hospitalized were younger than 55 years-old.  The report tracked cases from February 12th thru March 16th nationwide.

Health officials are now warning the younger populations that they are not immune from the pandemic and are inclined to get very sick and even die.  Younger generations have been called on the carpet in recent days for not taking the virus seriously, failing to practice social distancing.  President Trump even chimed in.  “We don’t want them gathering and I see they do gather, including on beaches and in restaurants,”  said Trump.

There was some hopeful news about the coronavirus for those persons under the age of 19.  Research shows those in that age group who were tested appear to have much milder illnesses with almost no hospitalizations.
