We say this again, young people are not invincible: WHO Chief on COVID-19

GENEVA: World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom on Thursday said, “Evidence suggests that the spike of cases in some countries is being driven in part by younger people letting down their guard.”

Dr Tedros added, “We have said it before and we’ll say it again: young people are not invincible.” Tedros suggested young people to take the same precautions as everyone else.

In several countries, including France and Germany, health experts have said that more young people are testing positive for the virus.

Officials said that young people have been social distancing less often and have more contacts.

WHO chief also said the coronavirus pandemic doesn’t mean life has to stop.

Dr Tedros further congratulated Saudi Arabia for the steps it has put in place to make the Hajj as safe as possible this year. He added, “We must all learn to live with the virus, and to take the steps necessary to live our lives.”

Meanwhile, global coronavirus cases surpassed 17 million on Thursday, including more than 667,000 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.
