COVID-19 is increasingly killing young adults who have no underlying conditions as India is wracked by a deadly second wave of infection.

“We’re seeing a higher number of young adults in this wave — 60 to 70 percent are younger than 60, of whom more than half are below 45,” said Reshma Tewari, director of critical care at Artemis hospital in the northern city of Gurgaon, in an interview with the Times of India. “Of those in ICU, deterioration is often rapid with many requiring ventilator support and aggressive treatment.”

Statistics recently released by Tamil Nadu, a southern state, show that an increasing amount of people under 40 without any underlying conditions are dying of COVID-19, the newspaper reported.

More than 26 million people have been infected with the coronavirus in India, and more than 295,500 have died, according to statistics compiled by Johns Hopkins University which has been tracking infections around the world.
