A 17 year old teenager died in New Orleans, USA due to coronavirus. It is not yet clear whether the young person who died has a disease other than coronavirus.
In the early days when the corona virus became a pandemic, the virus was said to threaten older people and people with chronic disease. However, overlapping information recently reminded that young people are also at risk from the virus.
A 17-year-old teenager is among 18 people who died in New Orleans on Wednesday, according to officials in the US state of Louisiana. The officials announced that the youngest person who died in the region due to coronavirus was this 17-year-old.
John Bel Edwards, the governor of the state of Louisiana, announced that the investigation into the death of the teenager, whose illness is unknown if he has no disease other than coronavirus, continues. Governor Edwards said, “This shows that everyone is at risk. “There is a percentage of the population at risk of serious complications, regardless of age and health status, and death is among the possibilities they may encounter.”
The 17-year-old boy’s death due to coronavirus has once again shown that young people are under threat against coronavirus. Young people who are at least as much at risk as the elderly should not ignore the warnings of the experts and continue to take strict measures.
