This summer, the majority of the medics assured that Covid-19 is absolutely not dangerous for young people as this category of the population gets through the illness in mild or almost asymptomatic form. However, the doctors changed their minds and state that the coronavirus is dangerous for people before the age of 50 and people of 50+, as Coronavirus_info reported citing Professor Serhiy Dubrov.

“In other words, in summer I told that for young people Covid-19 is not dangerous because mostly, young people get through the illness in mild form and they do not need the hospitalization. As of today, I can confidently say that it is not like that. Youth, even without concomitant pathologies, might have severe Covid-19 and mortality,” Dubrov assured.
