There is much evidence that younger people are getting covid, particularly the 20 to 29 years old, closely followed by the 30 to 39 years. They may not necessarily become very ill and so many of them seem to be thinking that it doesn't matter if they don't quite follow the rules.
According to Tim Spector from Kings College about 12% of sufferers have reported symptoms lasting for 30 days and 1 in 200 report symptoms lasting more than 90 days. There is now a support group "Long Covid SOS" that claims that GPs are not all taking these symptoms seriously.
The ME Association has seen many people turning to it for support and advice, according to its medical adviser. There is now a working theory that covid 19 affects the immune system.
It would seem that younger people need to be convinced that the disease can harm them and maybe cause long term damage. So following the rules is more than not hugging your granny.
I am attaching the article that I read which contains an interview with a 27 year old who was infected by covid back in mid March and is still suffering from the after effects. He, like others I have seen interviewed are unable to work.
