The WHO told young people they are at risk from COVID-19. Young people can catch the virus. Not just older people catch it. Many young people are getting ill or dying. They are also spreading the disease to grandparents. The White House told young people to not meet in large groups. This will help slow the spread of the virus.

Coronavirus can put young people in hospital for weeks. Many patients in hospital are under 50. It can also kill them. The choices young people make about where they go could kill someone else. New York's leader said young people must practice social distancing so they do not risk other peoples' health.
