If you think the new Novel Corona virus is just as dangerous for seniors and doesn't need to be cautious, review your thinking.
In fact, the risk of corona artery disease is much higher in people with coronavirus disease Covid-19, but the risk is not lower in young and middle-aged people.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention studies nearly two-thousand American cases.
The study found that in the United States, as in other countries, the risk of developing Covid-19 is higher at 70 years of age.
But researchers also discovered that 504 Americans or 38 percent of those hospitalized in the United States were between 20 and 54 years old.
Similarly, about 50% of the 121 most seriously ill persons admitted to the ICU were below 65 years of age.
Researchers also discovered that 20% of hospitalized patients and 12% of ICU patients were between 20 and 44 years old.
"I think everyone should pay attention to this, the outbreak is not just dangerous for the elderly," said Stephen Morris, a professor of epidemiology at Columbia University who was involved in the study.
Researchers urged young people to avoid traveling with friends and take steps to protect others with you.
"Youth can spread the virus to other people who may be infected with a disease we do not know, which can lead to death," he added.
