More young people getting virus than older folks in Northern Ireland ?
I read somewhere online more younger people than older citizens are now infected with the virus in Northern Ireland ? Any info on this would be appreciated as mainstream media in the rest of the UK are no longer updating virus news from NI, only Wales, England and Scotland ?

"no longer updating virus news from NI" That is untrue, even the BBC has an NI update page https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-northern-irelan...

What does this have to do with travel?

Anyone can contract the virus. Young people are no exception. It's just that the virus is more deadly in older people with underlying health problems. It wouldn't be a surprise that young people who ignore stay at home orders get the virus. Some of them will then pass it to older family members.

If what you are saying is true, the answer might lie in that younger people are both more likely to get together in groups and also to ignore the warnings about maintaining "social distance".
I.e they want to party and will do it anyway.
