Coronavirus causing sudden strokes in adults in their 30s and 40s

The coronavirus is causing sudden strokes in adults in their 30s and 40s, doctors said on Wednesday.

According to new findings, the deadly virus is affecting younger people who are not otherwise terribly ill.

The new report sets alarm bells ringing for young people who have defied self-isolation and social distancing calls on the basis of earlier reports that COVID-19 is not as dangerous for young people as it might be for old.

The doctors said there’s growing evidence that the virus infection can cause blood to clot unnaturally, and stroke would be an expected consequence of that

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump applauded steps by a handful of Republican-led U.S. states to reopen their economies.

New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo is wary of a potential fresh surge of coronavirus cases. He has cautioned that it was “no time to act stupidly.”

Cuomo, a Democrat who met with Trump on Tuesday, said his state was showing more signs the worst was over, including a drop in hospitalizations. Even so, he warned of a potential “second wave” if restrictions are relaxed irresponsibly.
