Hello! The 2 people are talking about the Coronavirus:

- Don't worry, young people will be fine.

- The problem is the elder relative which we all have.

Question:

Is "which we all have" a restrictive relative clause?

 If it is not, is a comma needed before it?

Hi, Robby zhu,

"which" is wrong there, and I'd use "elderly" rather than "elder."

- The problem is the elderly relatives we all have.

In this sentence, "we all have" is a restrictive clause.
