After weeks of protests and as the state opens up, a report by the Bay Area News Group says COVID-19 is impacting the young in California in greater and greater proportions.
Infectious disease epidemiologist George Lemp calculated coronavirus trends using historical data from the California Department of Public Health and found that 44 percent of new diagnoses are in people age 34 or younger, up from 29 percent a month ago.
There has been a corresponding drop in cases among older people, according to Lemp. The ratio of COVID-19 cases among those over 50 has plummeted from 46 percent to 30.5 percent over a corresponding period.
