The CDC looked at more than 2,400 cases of COVID-19 in the United States over the past month in the analysis released Wednesday. "Further, older adults should maintain adequate supplies of nonperishable foods and at least a 30-day supply of necessary medications, take precautions to keep space between themselves and others, stay away from those who are sick, avoid crowds as much as possible, avoid cruise travel and nonessential air travel, and stay home as much as possible to further reduce the risk of being exposed".

The ratio jumps to almost two in five - 38% - when the age bracket is increased to 54.

"I think everyone should be paying attention to this", Stephen Morse, a teacher of public health at Columbia University, informed The New YorkTimes "It's not just going to be the elderly". Of the hospitalized patients in the study, 38% belong to that age group, though almost all recover. There will be people age 20 and up.

The coronavirus task force is concerned about reports indicating more young people are becoming seriously ill from the coronavirus, Dr. Deborah Birx said during Wednesday's briefing at the White House. There have not been any documented fatalities among people under the age of 19 years old in the US, according to the data. Between February 12 and March 16, 4,226 cases were reported to the C.D.C., the study said.

As of Thursday afternoon, the illness was confirmed in more than 10,750 people in the USA and had resulted in at least 154 deaths. "You do that, interestingly, by not letting yourself get infected because you need to make sure that you don't inadvertently pass on the infection to someone who would not fare as well as you fared because you're young and healthy".

However, those under 19, account for less than one percent of hospitalizations, with none in the ICU.

"Moving an older adult from a long-term care center is risky and could have long-lasting impacts", David Gifford, chief medical officer of the American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living, told AARP. There were no ICU admissions reported for those under age 19, the report says.
