New C.D.C. Data show that nearly 40 percent of patients sick enough to be hospitalized aged 20 to 54. But the risk of death was significantly higher in the elderly.

By

American adults of all ages – not just those in their 70s, 80s and 90s -. was seriously fed up with coronavirus, according to a report on the nearly 2,500 first case was recorded in the US

, released Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, found that – as in other countries – the patient oldest has the greatest likelihood of dying and hospitalized. But from 508 patients known to have been hospitalized, 38 percent of mainly young – between 20 and 54. And nearly half of the 121 patients treated in the intensive care unit are adults under 65, which C.D.C. reported.

“I think everyone should pay attention to this,” said Stephen S. Morse, professor of epidemiology at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. “It’s not just going to be parents. There will be age 20 and up person. They should be careful, even if they think that they are young and healthy. “

The findings served to underscore the appeal issued on Wednesday at the White House briefing by Dr. Deborah Birx, doctors and officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is the leader of the task force of government coronavirus. Citing similar reports of young adults in Italy and in France to be hospitalized and require intensive care, Dr. Birx pleaded millennials stop socializing in groups and to take care to protect themselves and others.

“You have potential then spreads to someone who does not have a condition that none of us know about, and cause them to have disastrous results,” said Dr. Birx, dealing with young people.

in the CDC report, 20 percent of inpatients and 12 percent of intensive care patients are between the ages of 20 and 44, basically includes the millennial generation.

“Younger people may feel more confident about their ability to withstand a virus like this,” said Dr. Christopher Carlsten, head of respiratory medicine at the University of British Columbia. But, he said, “if that many young people who are being treated in hospital, which means that there are a lot of young people in society who walk around with an infection.”

The new data is the beginning see first significant wave of cases in the United States that does not include those who returned to the country from Wuhan, China, or Japan, the authors report. Between February 12th and March 16th there were 4,226 such cases were reported to the C.D.C., the study said.

reported for the 2449 age of the patient, who C.D.C. word, and of those, 6 percent 85 and older, and 25 percent are between 65 and 84. Twenty-nine percent of 20-44 year old.

group aged 55 to 64 and 45 to 54 respectively, including 18 percent of the total. Only 5 percent of cases are diagnosed in people 19 and younger.

The risk of patients who require hospitalization or dying from an infection caused by a coronavirus increases with age, as has been the pattern in other countries.

The report includes information about whether patients of all ages have underlying risk factors, such as chronic disease or immune system. So, it is not possible to determine whether younger patients are hospitalized more susceptible to serious infections than most others in their age group.

But experts say that even if young people in the report of medical outliers, the fact that they take up a hospital bed and a room in the intensive care unit significantly.

and the cases of more serious representing leading how fast pandemic underway in the United States, showed that adults of all ages are vulnerable and should be concerned about protecting their own health, and does not transmit the virus to others.

The youngest age group, those 19 and under, accounted for less than 1 percent of hospitalizations, and no ICU admission or death. This dovetails with data from other countries so far. This week, however, found that a small segment of the children were very young may need hospitalization for symptoms are very serious, and that one boy 14 years in China died from the virus.

Of the 44 people whose death is recorded in theReports, 15 were age 85 or older and 20 are between the ages of 65 to 84. There were nine deaths in adults ages 20 to 64, the report said.

Some of the patients in the study still sick, the authors note, so the outcome of the case are not clear. Data missing for a number of cases, “which may lead to underestimate the results,” the authors write. Due to missing data, the authors presented the percentage of hospitalization, I.C.U. admission and mortality as a range. The report also said that the limited testing available in the United States as far as this report is only a snapshot beginning of the crisis.

However, the authors wrote, “These preliminary data also shows that severe disease that leads to hospitalization, including ICU entry and death, can occur in adults of all ages with Covid-19.”
