It will take more time to see those who were infected by these young people to need hospitalization and possibly die. We are still in the first wave for the nation unlike NY where there were the most stringent controls enforced.
Another factor few are giving any notice is that there is increasing evidence that recovery isn't necessarily such a simple matter. We focus on hospitalizations and deaths, but have learned that even asymptomatic people may have damage to their organs at levels which don't compromise their health now but could have long-term repercussions.
Lungs show scaring, kidneys may be impacted, just about every organ is vulnerable even when there are no obvious symptoms from mild infections in people we consider recovered as well as in people who were asymptomatic. The latest findings show neurological symptoms emerging among many who were never hospitalize but have ongoing symptoms for more than three months that may be chronic. Autoimmune diseases may be triggered.
And these occur in a sizeable sample of the population studied. Don't underestimate the danger. It's neither rare nor minor and can have a lasting impact on the healthcare system and the economy beyond the suffering of a large percentage of the population. Added to that, some recent finding show that antibodies to C-19 seem not to last long, which can mean reinfection and, even worse, that vaccines may not be effective.
Some of you who post here seem to feel invulnerable or that these concerns are inflated for political reasons. Some of you believed it would fade away in warm temperature. If you would like to see links to established and respected medical institutions and studies confirming my statements, I can supply many.
Claire - do you have a source for this info?
