On March 6, 2020, the CDC issued a special warning for older adults:
“The CDC says early data suggests older people and people who have severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung, or kidney disease are at higher risk for more serious illness from the novel Coronavirus. The CDC says older people are twice as likely to become seriously ill if they become infected with the virus.
This advice from the CDC comes as two top infectious disease experts with ties to the federal government have advised people over 60 and those with underlying health problems to strongly consider avoiding activities that involve large crowds, such as traveling by airplane, going to movie theaters, attending family events, shopping at crowded malls, and going to religious services.” CNN
