CKTB - NEWS - Young People COVID-19

Ontario's premier urging young people to stop going to parties after a recent increase in COVID-19 cases.

"Hold off on these parties. I don't know why everyone wants to party so badly, but enough," Premier Doug Ford said yesterday after Ontario Health officials reported 203 new cases. "We have to keep this in control."

The latest stats show 116 of the new cases can be attributed to people 39 years of age or younger.

Canada's Deputy Chief of Public Health Dr. Howard Njoo believes an 'invincibility factor' may be at play among young people.
