Houston Chronicle: Inside a Galveston ICU, young patients once considered safe from COVID now desperately cling to life. “Previously in the pandemic, people age 65 and above made up the majority of hospitalizations nationwide, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data. That trend began to shift in April, after vaccines became widely available. As of Aug. 7, most people hospitalized fall within the 18 to 49 age range, the CDC reports. In Texas, COVID is infecting more people in their 30s than any other age group, with about 17,400 cases. People in their 20s are a close second, with about 15,900 cases.”
