" Young people are not as good an eye as the older of the symptoms. In the middle age, when you have children, you are ever a little under the weather, and then, perhaps, you do not think whether the new symptoms are popping up.
okay, to meet with the elderly people
Mostly it is the younger crowd, and the activities are indoors, the professor warns. The safest thing is to be in touch with the younger generation, over the phone or on Skype.

do not Call the health care for the krasslighet
any further advice from the professor is not to make a call to the service of man, only to feel a little under the weather. The healthcare sector is heavily loaded, and the older the person, the probability is very small, less sjukdomskänningar is a result of the covid-19.
"you Have only very mild symptoms, there is no danger," says Agnes Wold.
" Maybe 10 percent, maybe more, by older people who are affected go on to a really serious lungsjuka. That is when you see it, it feels like you can't breathe. It is not something to miss out on. You don't need to be worried about missing symptoms.
