Title

Record-breaking Covid case total led by surging numbers in young people

Description

Vermont reported 251 new Covid cases Friday, March 26, the highest ever one-day total and a significant rise over the daily numbers in the past week. Half of the cases announced in the past two weeks were in people under 30, which Dr. Mark Levine, Department of Health commissioner, attributed to multiple reasons. Young people being more mobile and social, warmer weather encouraging activity, and the spread of the variant, particularly on the University of Vermont’s college campus.
