It’s sick. Ignorant. Insensitive, and a heartless thing to do. A bunch of idiots in Alabama thought it was cool to have a COVID-19 party. The sick, twisted minds of some non-evolving young adults came up with the idea in having a Coronavirus party with a competition of who can contract the virus first. Reportedly, the winner is decided based on the first person to get infected with the virus. Council woman, Sonya McKinstry speaking out to CNN as the disturbing news came to her attention said:
We thought that was kind of a rumors at first. We did some research, not only do the doctors’ offices confirm it, but the state confirmed they also had the same information.
Reportedly, the party that was being held in Tuscaloosa pushed people who are infected with COVID-19 to attend the party- so others can be infected. From CTV News:
During a presentation to the City Council this week, Fire Chief Randy Smith also said young people in the city are throwing parties with a payout if they catch coronavirus, McKinstry said.
The first person confirmed by a doctor to have coronavirus after the exposure wins the money made off the ticket sales, she said. Over the past few weeks, there have been several parties in the city and surrounding areas, and probably more that officials don’t know about, she added.
