Young Australians who ignore the limitations of the coronavirus have been warned that they are not invincible to the virus following cases that have increased among young people under the age of 40.
On Friday, a seven-week-old baby tested positive for the virus in New South Wales and a 42-year-old man from the Philippines died in a Perth hospital.
NSW health minister Brad Hazzard revealed that 42 percent of all cases within the state are now under 40, while the majority of young people aged 20 to 29 are the majority.

“For those of you who think you can’t get COVID-19 because you’re younger, and the answer is you absolutely can,” he said.
“You should get the message, guys, that now is not the time to party.
“Social distance is what protects us.”
Australians have been urged to stay indoors and leave the house only for essential reasons such as exercise, food and medical appointments.
But a series of young people have been caught ignoring the rules.
There were a few earlier this month fined $ 2,000 for breaking coronavirus laws after police caught them in their cars on a quiet suburban street.
