A 30 year old Texas man dies from the coronavirus after attending a “Covid-19 Party” that was hosted by an infected person according to a medical doctor. The deceased had attended the coronavirus party thinking that the virus was just a hoax. 

“Just before the patient died, they looked at their nurse and said ‘I think I made a mistake, I thought this was a hoax, but it’s not,’” said Dr Jane Appleby, the chief medical officer at Methodist hospital in San Antonio.

“COVID Parties” are a new trend among young people in the United States, where someone who is infected by the novel coronavirus invites a dozen or more people to see if the virus spreads. In some cases, a prize pool is created where all partygoers chip in some cash. Whoever ends up infected wins the cash, and if there are multiple infections the prize money is shared among all “winners”.

This irresponsible high-risk behavior puts the lives of young and old at risk. Young people think they are invincible, but in reality this virus is also very effective at killing not just the elderly, but also young people due to the virus triggering an inflammatory cascade. 

 

COVID-19 parties are a growing trend among young people

The United States has the highest number of coronavirus infections and deaths in the world. Are you sure your grandchildren did not attend such a “Catching Corona” party? Could the actions of your loved ones be putting you or your elderly relatives at risk? Protect yourself and the people you love by wearing masks from givingmasks.com.

Indeed, in Hong Kong which has a mask wearing compliance rate of 99%, the infection rate of coronavirus is remarkably low with a total infection rate of 1,431 and 7 deaths. Hong Kong, with a population of 7.45 million, is one of the most densely populated places on earth which makes social distancing difficult. Face masks are the primary defense mechanism, and the results speak for themselves: record low deaths instead of a New York style nightmare.
