COVID-19: what can sweep away misconceptions about young people
With 460,000 cases, 114,000 people healed and 20,800 dead, the coronavirus continues its unwavering conquest of the planet.
A pandemic that seems to spare young people, because according to the latest statistics, only 1% of people are 9 years or less, only 1% were between 10 and 19 years old.
However, the development of the situation can change the situation. First, the death of 21-year-old Chloe Middleton from the UK. He is probably the youngest person with no health history who will give up for -19.

In addition, an eight-month-old baby whose father recently traveled from Kenya was among the four new cases announced by the Ugandan government.
About five days ago, it attracted the attention of young people at -19.
“Today I have a message to young people: you are not invincible. This virus can lead you to hospital for weeks and even kill you. Even if you don’t get sick, the choices you make when you’re on the run can be a matter of life and death for someone else, “said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, executive director of the UN agency.
