“Significant decrease” in Covid-19 among young people

A member of the National Public Health Emergency Team (Nphet) said the number of young people contracting Covid-19 has “decreased significantly”.

Professor Philip Nolan says there is evidence that levels of infection are gradually declining in people aged 65 and over as the number of hospitals and intensive care units has stabilized.

Prof. Nolan added that it was clear that people were respecting the level 5 restrictions, with younger people making special efforts to suppress the virus.

Yesterday, 68 percent of the 499 confirmed cases of Covid-19 were in people under the age of 45. The mean age of patients with Covid-19 was 32 years.

Earlier this week, Chief Medical Officer Dr. Tony Holohan also reported the decline in the virus among younger people and praised them for their efforts to reduce transmission rates.

Dr. Holohan said the number of people between the ages of 19 and 24 who contracted Covid-19 in the first two weeks of Level 5 restrictions has “decreased dramatically”.

During that two week period, the 14-day incidence rate for the age group per 100,000 fell from 450 to 150, below the current national rate of 196.4.

Dr. Holohan added that young people have cut their contacts in half in the past five weeks.
