Doctors condemn young people having parties amid coronavirus outbreak: 'This is not the time to be stupid'
Police are still breaking up mass gatherings of teenagers and young adults across the country.across the country despite people being urged to quarantine. In New Jersey, Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal described how police charged people with holding prohibited gatherings after breaking up a house party in Penns Grove on Saturday. Those in attendance at the party were allegedly posting videos of the event onto YouTube. Police also had to break up a mass gathering of around 25 teenagers and adult males in Lakewood on Tuesday evening. Dr. Mike Tildesley, associate professor in the Department of Life Sciences at the University of Warwick, England, said young and healthy people must be aware of the dangers about COVID -19 for themselves following reports that a 21-year-old British woman with no underlying conditions died after contracting the virus. "Whilst it is true that the elderly and those with underlying health conditions are more likely to exhibit severe symptoms as a result of infection, individuals of all ages can become infected and transmit the disease and regardless of age, there remains the possibility that any individual could develop severe, life threatening symptoms," Tildesley told Newsweek. "The key objective of large scale social distancing measures is to reduce the number of contacts that everyone has and thus collapsing the contact network and the ability of the virus to transmit between individuals at a large scale. If people defy social distancing measures then this can severely hamper the effectiveness of this intervention, which may mean that stringent policies remain in place for much longer. "It is vital that everyone follows standard good hygiene practices and social distancing advice to ensure that they not only protect themselves but also the most vulnerable members of society who are at greatest risk of requiring hospitalization," Tildesley said.

Doctors are urging young people not to ignore the social distancing guidelines amid the coronavirus outbreak. iStock Dr. Michael Head, Senior Research Fellow in Global Health, at the University of Southampton in South England, also condemned those who are still flaunting the social distancing guidelines because of the dangers they are putting others in. "Organizing gatherings is incredibly irresponsible at this time, and we have already seen cases of COVID -19 that have likely been spread at these ' coronavirus parties,'" Head told Newsweek. "Those who participate are risking their own health, and actively increase transmission around their communities, which will include vulnerable populations such as their own elderly relatives. Alongside this, there are poor public health messages coming from the political leaders in the USA , that encourage reckless behavior. "This is not a time to be stupid. This is a time to take personal responsibility, for yourself, your family and your country," Head said. Last week, a report from the revealed that around 20 percent of people hospitalized with the virus in the U.S are aged between 20 and 44. There are more than 69,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the U.S., the third highest in the world according to Johns Hopkins University. Over 1,050 people have died from COVID -19, with 619 patients recovering from the virus. The graphic below, provided by , shows the global spread of the new coronavirus Read more: Newsweek

Yes, COVID-19 can be serious for younger adults, too, CDC report showsNew data from the CDC indicate that people ages 20 to 44 accounted for about 1 in 5 known hospitalizations in the U.S. amid the coronavirus outbreak. Do not let POTUS BS your nation like BorisJohnson has done to uk. There is no way this is going away in three weeks. If you do not act fast, effectively and heed WHO scientific evidence and advice you could be seeing 200k deaths in US. Here are recomendation to UK: This is not true.. Infact there was a young gal who got infected even without any underlying condition. puzzlepeaces Relative risk may be low. Guess what, it was also low for the Spanish Flu. The issue is that this virus has a long gestation period, easily passes from person to person and, if just a third of our country is infected, at least 2,000,000 people will die.
