COVID 19 seems to be affecting young people like never before.
Queensland’s outbreak is still small next to Sydney’s, but the virus is concentrated in schools.
For example on Monday, the state recorded 15 new cases — ten of them were children younger than nine years of age.
Today on The Signal, Australia’s current outbreak isn’t slowing down, and more children are being diagnosed every day.
So how much worse is Delta for young people?
