‘Do you really need to party?’: WHO to youth

'Do you really need to party?': WHO to youth

WHO has said young people must curb their party instincts to help prevent new COVID-19 outbreaks.

“Younger people also need to take on board that they have a responsibility,” said WHO emergencies chief and father-of-three Mike Ryan in an online discussion. “Ask yourself the question: do I really need to go to that party?”

Ryan said young people were often reticent in giving their details or disclosing friends’ names to contact tracers. “It’s tough but it is what is needed to stop the virus,” he said.
