When you think of a patient that has been diagnosed with COVID-19, who do you think they are? A sick elderly? young child? Pregnant Woman?
If you think ” Yes”, then SORRY because your image of a COVID-19 patient is probably wrong. Covid-19 doesn’t discriminate by race, gender, or age.
Speaking at an online news conference from the WHO headquarters in Geneva, Dr. Tedros said:
“Today, I have a message for young people: You are not invincible. The virus could put you in hospital for weeks, or even kill you.”
” Even you don’t get sick, the choices you make about where you go could be the difference between life and death for someone else”
Young people are not invincible from #COVID19. The #coronavirus could put you in hospital for weeks, or even kill you. Even if you don’t get sick, the choices you make about where you go could be the difference between life and death for someone else. https://t.co/fOK1OkINbK pic.twitter.com/m6LSlMgqNf

Although older people get the hardest hit, younger people are not spared, the WHO chief warned.
Tedros added that the data from several countries showed that people under 50 also make up a significant proportion of patients that require hospitalisation.
He also thanked many young people for “spreading the word and not the virus”, adding that solidarity between countries and between age groups is the key defeating Covid-19.
Look at them, these are all young people that sharing in social media they are tested positive for Covid-19.
