Speaking on RTÉ’s Today with Claire Byrne, Dr Ryan said that although younger people may suffer a less severe version of the disease, it is not guaranteed that this will be the case and that there is always the risk of passing it to older populations.

Dr Ryan said it is not known yet about what kind of protection people will have if they contract the disease.
