One-Third Of COVID-19 Hospitalizations In Central Oregon Under Age 50

BEND, OR -- Deschutes Health Officer Doctor George Conway participated in a public health briefing yesterday. He said many people believe the young are largely invulnerable to COVID-19. However 6-per cent of those hospitalized are under 20,,,13-per cent are between 20 and 39…and 15-per cent are 40-to-49. Conway says this means 35-per cent of those in the hospital are under age 50. Conway also said the virus signals from wastewater testing in Bend remain very strong and that indicates more virus cases coming. He continues to urge everyone to mask, social distance and wash hands
