Did you read this paragraph, about 1/2 way through the article?
"The report included no information about whether patients of any age had underlying risk factors, such as a chronic illness or a compromised immune system. So, it is impossible to determine whether the younger patients who were hospitalized were more susceptible to serious infection than most others in their age group."
So it's hard to make any determination at this point
I hate that they have to close shit down because if we didn't act like idiots and/or savages maybe the restaurants could have been kept open with the adage "don't go out to eat unless you really need to and restaurants should segregate tables at least 6 ft apart. And if you
And the following two paragraphs after the one you posted.
But experts said that even if younger people in the report were medical outliers, the fact that they were taking up hospital beds and space in intensive care units was significant.

I don't know about you, but I have a 93 year old mother, and other family members that are immocompromised. I don't give a shit about sports if it means those people are safe.

On that same day, Burr attended a luncheon held at a social club called the Capitol Hill Club. And he delivered a much more alarming message.
"There's one thing that I can tell you about this: It is much more aggressive in its transmission than anything that we have seen in recent history," he said, according to a secret recording of the remarks obtained by NPR. "It is probably more akin to the 1918 pandemic."
The luncheon had been organized by the Tar Heel Circle, a nonpartisan group whose membership consists of businesses and organizations in North Carolina, the state Burr represents. Membership to join the Tar Heel Circle costs between $500 and $10,000 and promises that members "enjoy interaction with top leaders and staff from Congress, the administration, and the private sector," according to the group's website.
