The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the Corona virus can still infect and kill young people who should avoid contacting the elderly and other high-risk groups.\r\n\r\nWith more than 210,000 cases reported and 9,000 deaths worldwide, each day "brings a new and tragic turn," <a href="https:\/\/www.livemint.com\/news\/world\/-you-are-not-invincible-who-message-to-youth-on-novel-coronavirus-11584758702373.html">said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus,<\/a> Director-General of the World Health Organization.\r\n\r\n"Although older people are the most vulnerable, young people are not safe. Data from many countries clearly show that people under the age of 50 make up a good proportion of patients whose condition requires hospitalization," he said during a virtual news conference.\r\n\r\n"Today, I have a message for young people: You are not immune, this virus can put you in hospital for weeks and may kill you. Even if you don't get sick, the choices you make about where to go can be the difference between life and death for someone else."\r\n\r\nBut he added that for the first time in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the epidemic, no new cases were reported since Thursday, "which gives hope to the rest of the world that the situation can turn even in the most affected regions of the world."\r\n\r\nHe added that the organization distributed 1.5 million laboratory testing units around the world, and it may take 80 times this number to deal with the epidemic.\r\n\r\nHours ago, a\u00a0senior official at the International Monetary Fund stated that the impact of the <a href="https:\/\/see.news\/?s=corona">Corona virus<\/a> global spread will be very tough, noting though, that the crisis happened after a long period of growth and high employment rates which would help the global economy to stand the ongoing crisis.\r\n\r\nSo far, the virus has claimed the lives of more than 11 thousand people worldwide and infected more then 250 thousand in most of countries.
