On Monday, President Trump and the White House’s New Coronary Virus Working Group announced new guidelines to slow the spread of the disease, known as COVID-19,media reported. Dr. Deborah Birx, coordinator of the new coronavirus response, called on millennials to take action at a news conference, saying that young people are the core group that stops the spread of the virus.
The new guidelines are understood to require all Americans to avoid social gatherings for more than 10 people. Less than 24 hours before the event, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advised against gatherings of more than 50 people for nearly two months.
“They’re the ones who go out… The most likely people who are not asymptomatic,” Dr. Birx said. “
Now a lot of news and social media have clearly depicted many millennials taking part in nightlife across the country over the weekend.
On social media platforms, a debate broke out, with some calling staying at home an overreaction and others blaming those who refuse to reduce human contact. Tags like “stay at home” are now trending on social media platforms.
It should be noted that almost all public health officials agree that it is wise to keep millennials at home, which could reduce the spread of the virus and prevent it from spreading to the elderly, people with compromised immune systems, and other vulnerable groups.
