Most COVID-19 cases among young people have mild or asymptomatic symptoms. But this is not always the case, and there are cases that get complicated, such as that of an 18-year-old, who is admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the General Hospital of Elche, in serious condition. He is one of those affected in the Valencian Community for the outbreak related to study trips to Mallorca.
The latest figure given by the Ministry of Health on this outbreak, estimated 67 confirmed cases. Elche was the first town from which positive for this outbreak were known, but there are also cases of coronavirus with the same origin in Xàtiva, Gandia, Castelló and Alicante.
Valencian Public Health teams continue to investigate the outbreak and follow up on contacts. The ultimate objective is to elucidate the exact number of infections and identify them, for this, the professionals are reconstructing the activities that the young people did during the end of study trip to Mallorca that they did between June 12 and 18. The investigations seek to encapsulate the outbreak and prevent it from spreading among the young people.
