12. Who Is Most Susceptible to the Virus?
Unfortunately, people of all age groups can be infected by the new coronavirus. The elderly or people with pre-existing medical conditions such as asthma or heart disease appear to be most vulnerable to the virus so far.
However, the WHO advises individuals of all age groups to take precautions and follow good hygiene measures (wash your hands regularly). Whilst someone in their 20s might not be at high risk of dying from the virus, they are able to infect someone who might have a weaker immune system to them.
