Interesting NYT article on University Covid cases and deaths.  Note they do not break out staff vs students, or talk about hospitalizations.  They also talk about how different universities are counting cases differently and how many are refusing to answer queries, also how some cases are eliminated when the person gets better.

CDC does give the a hospitalization rate 68.8 per 100,000 lab confirmed cases for 18-29 year olds, and lists 741 deaths in this age group.  It does make me think a lot of the deaths in the NYT study are not students.
