Corona - Todesfälle nach Alter/Vorerkrankung/Zustand
25-Year-Old California Man With No Underlying Conditions Dies Of COVID-19

While coronavirus deaths have primarily been in those above 50-years-old, the disease has also been sending younger people to the ICU in larger than expected numbers - and in some cases, claiming younger victims.
In France, doctors have reported that 50% of ICU patients are under 60-years-old, while in the Netherlands, half are under 50.
Nearly 50% of critically ill coronavirus patients in Brazil are under 60

On Saturday, the Los Angeles Times noted the COVID-19 death of a 25-year-old pharmacy technician with no underlying health issues, whose body was found on Wednesday at a home in the Coachella valley neighborhood of La Quinta where they were in self-quarantine. The San Diego resident's identity has not been disclosed.

"This is a deeply saddening reminder that COVID-19 kills the young and healthy too," said Riverside County public health officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser. "Stay safe. Keep travel and errands to essentials, and observe social distance no matter how young or well you are. Our condolences and thoughts are with everyone this pandemic has touched."
According to the Times, the majority of coronavirus cases in the county are under 50-years-old:
This is the California age range for coronavirus patients:
  • Age 0-17: 45 cases
  • Age 18-49: 1,906 cases
  • Age 50-64: 967 cases
  • Age 65 and older: 847 cases
  • Unknown: 36 cases

"My deepest condolences go out to the family of the young adult who passed," said Fourth District Riverside County Supervisor V. Manuel Perez. "The virus does not discriminate and age doesn’t matter. This tragedy demonstrates the need to stay in place. It’s safer at home."
Health officials report that the deceased 25-year-old was exposed to the virus outside of Riverside county. It is important to note that while the man had no underlying health conditions, he did not go to the ER, where he could have been given one of several experimental treatments and been put on a life-saving ventilator...........
