MYTH: Covid-19 only infects certain groups of people.

Answer: 

There is currently no evidence to support the idea that the virus only infects certain groups of people.

Although global reports show that Covid-19 can affect some patients more severely. 

Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart and lung problems, diabetes, or cancer, are at higher risk of developing a more severe case of the virus. Ultimately -anyone regardless of their age, gender, and ethnicity - can be infected with Covid-19.  

Just because the symptoms are mild, it does not mean it cannot be passed on to someone who may be more vulnerable.
