Alarm as US, UK teen die of coronavirus

Two healthy teens in US and UK died of coronavirus raising doubts on the narrative that the virus is not deadly for youths.  A British 21-year-old woman with no pre-existing conditions has died from coronavirus, The Sun newspaper reported yesterday. In California, officials on Tuesday pleaded for young people to heed safety warnings over the virus after a teen tested positive and died. Multiple studies have found the virus disproportionately affects older patients and those with underlying conditions. A recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found juveniles "appear to have milder" illness, with no intensive care admissions or deaths in the US as of March 16. Only two known cases of minors dying from the disease in China, where the virus emerged late last year, have been recorded.
