Can adolescents catch COVID-19 ?
Can adolescents transmit COVID-19 to others even if they have lights or any symptoms?
Yes, all infected people, regardless of age, can transmit the virus. Even if you have light or any symptoms, you can still transmit the virus, so be careful all the time.
How is the virus transmitted ?
The virus is spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth. These droplets are created when a person coughs, sneezes or talks. The droplets can directly infect the person close to us or land on a surface or object. If someone then touches that object and touches their face, they may be contaminated. That is why it is important to wash your hands thoroughly.
Why it's important that I follow the rules when young people are less affected by serious forms of the disease ?
Think about your family, your loved ones and your environment. The best way to protect them is to follow the recommendations. It is important that you avoid getting the virus so that you don't pass it on to your loved ones.
In addition, some young people also have serious forms of the disease.
