Young Adults Now Make Up Largest Number of COVID-19 Cases in California

"And while more young adults have tested positive for COVID-19, the rate of hospitalizations and deaths in that age group remains low. “If you’re young and you’re healthy, you may end up in the hospital but your risk of dying is really much lower. So, are we going to see more hospitalizations? Maybe. But are we going to see a drastic increase in deaths in the young population, I wouldn’t say so yet,” said Tseng."

"Young adults between the ages of 18 through 34 now make up 44% of positive COVID-19 cases in California. The figure is up from 29% compared to one month ago. The age group represents the largest share of COVID-19 cases in the state."

"There is no definitive reason as to why there is a marked increase in positive cases in the age group. But it coincides with the reopening of many businesses, including bars and restaurants in the state. There’s also been an increase in the availability of testing."

1. Bars.

Probably the same reason that places like Florida have recent spikes. Not so much the beaches, but the nightlife after the Sun goes down.
