New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Thursday, the only age group seeing a rise in cases over the last two weeks are 21 to 30-year-olds.
"There's an attitude that young people are immune ... you are not, 21 to 30 the virus can kill you," Cuomo said. "And if it doesn't kill you, you can bring it home and give it to someone inadvertently and it can kill them, so they're laboring under false pretenses."
The governor says 28 cases are linked to a July 4th party in the Albany area.
Similar to New York, a COVID cluster of approximately 20 cases is being linked to a house party in Middletown, New Jersey that took place on July 11.
New York is planning to release a PSA to remind young people that they too can get seriously ill and even die from coronavirus.
