More people, younger people admitted to hospital with COVID-19 [Memphis]

Tuesday, almost another 200 new COVID-19 cases were reported in Shelby County. Monday it was 250. Doctors on the Joint Task Force say the increasing numbers was just one of their concerns.

In addition to the increase number of cases, there has been a steep incline in the number of hospitalizations. Previously the majority of the hospitalizations were from people in nursing homes, the elderly, or those with comorbidities - chronic long-term conditions.

"We are now seeing much younger people coming to the hospital, many of them in their 20s and 30s, and in many cases, people who do not have any health conditions or comorbidities. This is very worrisome because it's different than the patterns we have been seeing," said Dr. Jon McCullers.

Makes me wonder whether this is from a mutated strain? I'm staying home!

2. I am too. I am lucky enough to be doing this for a couple months without losing. After that, I start

living on savings.

7. I don't know how. As it is, my job is in hotel. They have not even called me, though job is

suppose to be there. They must not have the reservations, so still on skeleton. I am good until end of July. I planned to take Aug too. But I need to find a job with low traffic and where I will not be smack in the middle of lots of people for the whole shift. Clerical, accounting of some kind. But then, I am old so I am not hire-able like when I was younger. But... Yup, I am staying in too.

11. Can you be a contract tracer?

I believe that is working from home & there is a free course online. Might be worth a look. ?

5. The Memorial Day pics we saw from Tennessee

didnít show a lot of senior citizens jammed up in groups of tens and twenties, maskless and partying hearty. The virus will enter the hosts that are available.

6. K&R

In my area the tourists have returned. And I expect our numbers to skyrocket in about a week. Seems it hit th e elderly first and now is coming for everyone else. A couple weeks ago there were alarming realizations about the 40-60 yo cohort, then children, now those in their prime.

16. The 1918 Virus did a huge amount of killing in the 18-40 year old age range.

Maybe SAR-COV-2 needs to do that to get peoples' attention and cause them to give a shit.

23. Maybe a good number of them going a couple rounds with COVID-19 will change their

and the family and friend's thinking. One of the very infortunate things about life is some people learn only by being hurt.

17. This is disturbing.

It's tragic when it's older people, yet absolutely heart-breaking when children suffer from this god-awful illness; especially when parents can't sit bedside at the hospital. As a mother, I don't know how I could sleep, eat, function, knowing my child was going through it alone.

26. Our numbers in NWFL are starting to trend to younger people!

We had a big outbreak in a nursing home. However, our new numbers are people aged 5 years old to early 60s.

29. Average in OK is now 36.

That is according to an ABC (local) report tonight. There was a massive spike in Tulsa. I don't know about Memphis, but if the trend continues, we will be seeing younger people getting and dying from the disease.

31. I'll have to try to look up avg age.

If I find it, I will report back here, but about a month ago it was 30-50 range, with quite a few younger ones.

Be safe!
