Broader social interaction among people under 40 is thought to be responsible for the soaring number of Covid-19 infections.
Many young people suffer from subjective illnesses
The age of new corona virus patients appears to be younger after the number of Covid-19 cases has risen sharply in countries such as the US and Portugal. The cause of this increase is attributed to the greater exposure of people under 40 years of age after the restrictions were relaxed.
According to the Guardian, this trend is most evident in the United States and has been mentioned by scientists from the World Health Organization (WHO).
Statistical data from the United States in the past few days, especially from Florida, Texas and Arizona, show that the number of virus infections has risen sharply among people under 40, much higher than the first phase of the pandemic. . Experts say this is due to the fact that young people, who consider themselves less likely to become ill, become subjective.
An increase in the number of young people infected with the disease has led to concerns that the neglect of young people in isolation may be a key factor leading to the second highest number of viral infections in the UK and elsewhere. In the United States, Covid-19 infections have risen sharply among young people living in states who reopened bars, restaurants and supermarkets.
