DeSantis: "Dramatic decline" in average age of Florida coronavirus patients

Looking at Thursday’s COVID-19 test results specifically, DeSantis said the median age of coronavirus patients in Palm Beach County was 40, Broward County was 41, and Miami-Dade County was 33.

The governor added that when COVID-19 testing started months ago, the average age of patients was in the 60s.

“Those under 40, in particular, who don’t have any significant underlying conditions, are much, much less likely to be hospitalized or to suffer fatality,” DeSantis said.

A lot of the people testing positive in Florida right now are not showing symptoms of the virus, according to the governor.
