The ongoing Corona Virus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has impacted the lives of the population from all age-groups and the effects have been way beyond the health dimension. Even though, the initial treatment outcomes have suggested that elderly people are more at risk to develop severe forms of the disease, but it is important to remember that even the younger people are not spared from the infection. In-fact, the epidemiological data obtained from most of the nations has revealed that people less than 50 years of age constitute a significant share of the patients. As it is a well-known fact that no nation or community or individual is immune to the infection, in these challenging times, each and every section of society, including the young people, should take adequate steps to restore their physical and mental well-being. In conclusion, the support of young people in minimizing the spread of the COVID-19 infection is extremely crucial and they should extend their complete support and adhere to the national recommendations in these difficult times of COVID-19 pandemic.
