Increase in Cases Among Young Adults Has Doctors Worried

Experts are alarmed by the increase in COVID-19 cases. They are now warning younger individuals to avoid going out, claiming they are not exempt from having severe symptoms or even dying from this sickness.

This week the Rio Grande Valley reported their two most unusual deaths from coronavirus : a 21-year-old woman who passed away after giving birth and a 33-year-old man. Medical experts say this highlights a serious problem.

They claim young adults are not taking the recommendations to avoid contracting the virus seriously.

“The young are not immune to death from this and you also do not want to get so sick that you are put in a hospital either. You can’t just look at the mortal rate for younger people and say it is okay:any deaths are not okay.”
