U.S. official says data show severe coronavirus infections among millennials, not just older Americans (click here)
A top health official on the White House’s coronavirus task force warned Wednesday that younger people could suffer severe health risks from Covid-19, the disease caused by the virus.
Most public health messaging so far has stressed that people who are older, whose immune systems are weakened, and who have underlying diseases are at higher risk of becoming critical cases. But during a briefing, Deborah Birx, the official, cited preliminary data from Europe to caution the public that younger adults can get very sick as well.

Update on my brother’s medical status: He is still alive and holding on. His oxygen levels are improving. Obviously our prayers are working. As expected, he had to go on dialysis because his kidneys were failing. They can’t handle all the medications and stress. There is a nurse with him 24 hours a day. He is being watched 100% of the time. My deepest thanks and respect for my brother’s medical team. Our medical staff and first repsonders are our true heroes.
Please continue to pray for my brother Walter/Donald. Just stop for a moment and say a little word of hope to the powers that be. It’s about all we have right now. My sister-in-law is trying desperately to get the drug, Remdesevir, to him but there is so much red tape (Gilead even lost the medical papers and they had to be re-issued, another time waster) ascertaining the drug in a timely manner will take a miracle. That’s what we are all praying for: a miracle!
