Chief medical officer warns of virus spreading among young people
“There is a higher possibility in that age group to pass on the virus in a social setting,” Cecilia Müller said, highlighting the responsibility of young people. She noted that while young people may have milder symptoms of Covid-19, they could transmit the virus to others just as well.
Müller also warned that rules and recommendations concerning the epidemic should be observed, with special regard to social distancing, wearing masks in enclosed public spaces, the frequent disinfecting of hands as well as surfaces used by other people. Responsible behaviour could help prevent the reintroduction of restrictions in force during the first wave of the epidemic, she added.
