Why Covid-19 is so dangerous for older adults

Craig Radford, the director of Connect Direct, a subsidiary of Communication Service for the Deaf, told CNN that his organization had created a dedicated "ASL Now" hotline for deaf people to get answers to commonly asked coronavirus questions. "We provide answers from reputable sources like the IRS, CDC [and] local government to answer their questions, and we provide them in American Sign Language instead of written English," Radford said. "We have to update the source daily, staff the representatives, and provide a hotline number. We have received hundreds of calls in just 10 days of launch." Now, that data, along with emerging research from Italy — the second-most-affected country in the world — is showing just how dangerous Covid-19 is for older people, and others with with heart, lung, and immunological conditions.
