The prevailing narrative suggests younger people are less susceptible to Covid-19 symptoms than older folks. However, Moscow data shows that almost half of new coronarvirus cases in the past 24 hours involved patients under 40.
Out of the newly recorded 212 cases in the Russian capital, 102 sufferers are between 18 and 40, and 58 are between 40 and 65. Health officials added that 17 of the freshly infected are children.
The total includes 43 people who recently returned from other parts of Europe. Moscow officials earlier reported that a sizable portion of confirmed Covid-19 patients, in the capital, were young people, with many of them requiring artificial lung ventilation.
Overall, 302 new coronavirus cases have been reported in Russia on Monday, bringing the total number of cases to 1,836, nationwide.
