Coronavirus In Ireland – Doc Warns Young People Are Not Immune From Chronic Fatigue Syndrome After Catching Covid-19

From Irish newspaper The Irish Sun:
Coronavirus in Ireland – Doc warns young people are not immune from chronic fatigue syndrome after catching Covid-19
YOUNG people who catch Covid-19 can develop chronic fatigue syndrome and pass the coronavirus onto loved ones who may die, a Dublin GP warned today.
Dr Maitiú Ó Tuathail said he was seeing people in 20s and 30s who were showing symptoms of Covid-19, which tallies with recent government statistics showing a higher proportion of young people catching the disease.
Speaking on Newstalk's The Hard Shoulder today, he said: "In South Korea a month ago, there was an outbreak in pubs and nightclubs. Again, it was in the 20 and 30-year-old age groups that that outbreak occurred in.
"It stands to reason, they're the most social of all the groups."
Dr Ó Tuathail said he had seen five patients yesterday with potential Covid-19 symptoms, more than he's seen in three or four weeks and said that he hoped that young people would take the disease more seriously.
