The youngest American adults are by far the worst at taking precautions to help reduce the spread of coronavirus, the Centers for Disease Control and PRevention (CDC) reports.

In their analysis of the data, the authors observed: "Lower engagement in mitigation behaviors among younger adults might be one reason for the increased incidence of Covid-19 cases in this group, which have been shown to precede increases among those 60 years or older".

Overall, masks are being worn more by Americans. Despite wearing personal protective equipment, an investigation revealed that prior to the officer's diagnosis he had numerous brief encounters with six COVID-19 positive inmates over an eight-hour shift totaling 17 cumulative minutes of exposure.

While the proportion of people who reported wearing a mask increased from 78 percent in April up to 89 percent in June, the share of of people who took any other steps decreased over the same time period.

But the survey found either no change or a decline in other behaviors aimed at preventing the spread of the coronavirus, such as hand-washing, social distancing and avoiding public or crowded places.

Nevada's public health officials stress, however, that all Nevadans must continue to be mindful and maintain social distance, good hand hygiene and wear a mask when outside their homes.

For example, mask wear increased from 83.7 percent in April to 92.4 percent in June in people 60 and over. Del Rio was not involved in conducting the survey, which appears in this week's issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. "Young adults might also be less likely to engage in mitigation behaviors because of social, developmental, and practical factors", the researchers wrote.

Aside from the discrepancy between seniors and young adults, the increased use of masks over the three-month period is a positive sign. "Results are encouraging", he says, "but I wish they were better - especially among younger people".

They said targeted messaging and behavior modification interventions were needed to encourage younger adults.

Dr. Amesh Adalja, senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security, said seniors' being more cautious is not surprising.

Black Americans, who make up 13 percent of the US population, are 4.7 times more likely than whites to be hospitalized with COVID-19, CDC data from August showed.

He told Yahoo Life that younger adults tend to be "most risk-tolerant" or more willing to put themselves in danger.

But the risk, he notes, isn't zero.

Young people are now the main drivers of increasing coronavirus cases across the USA, which are now hitting record highs for daily infections.

JAMA Internal Medicine also found that infections among this age group also make up 21% of intensive care cases and almost 3% die.
