The World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said surges in the number of new Covid-19 cases in some countries were driven partly by young people letting down their guard, but that the world needed to learn to live with the disease.
“We’ve said this before and we’ll say it again: young people are not invincible,” WHO director general Tedros told a news briefing in Geneva on Thursday, adding recent “spikes have been driven by young people letting down their guard in the northern hemisphere summer.”
Brazil’s first lady, Michelle Bolsonaro, has tested positive for Covid-19, presidential officials have announced.
“She appears to be in good health and will follow all the existing protocols,” the presidential communication secretariat said in a statement, adding that she was being cared for by the president’s medical team.
