And this time the data comes from Canada.
In this analysis (published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal) of all admissions to hospital with COVID-19 in 7 Toronto-area hospitals , these researchers found that as expected, older people (over 75) accounted for the most deaths by far, but “adults under 50 accounted for 20% of all COVID-19 hospitalizations in the first wave of the pandemic” and “nearly 1 in 3 adults younger than 50 hospitalized with COVID-19 required intensive care, with nearly 1 in 10 requiring an unplanned readmission to hospital after discharge.”
That’s a severe illness.
No matter what age you are.
Wear your masks.
