A 36-Year-Old Man Is the Youngest Victim of the Wuhan Coronavirus Outbreak So Far

A 36-year-old man in the central Chinese city of Wuhan has become the latest—and youngest—victim of the new coronavirus outbreak, local health authorities announced Friday. The patient was not reported to have any prior medical conditions. In many of the other 26 virus deaths, health officials reported pre-existing conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and pulmonary infection. According to official data, most of the victims were between the ages of 65 and 80. The oldest were two 88-year-old men.

CONCLUSIONS: The average patient is middle aged (often male) with a history of subacute back pain, sometimes presenting fever and/or neurological damage on diagnosis. Acute phase reactants are frequently raised. Diabetes mellitus, endocarditis and immunosuppressed patients may have the worst chance of a good outcome, therefore these patients should be more carefully managed (always try to obtain an imaging-guided biopsy, correct antibiotic treatment, and a functional and clinical follow-up).
