Don’t be a COVIDIOT and have dangerous coronavirus parties…you’re putting yourselves and others at risk and will get called out by Governor Andy Beshear.
Beshear did not say when, where, or how many people attended what he called a “coronavirus party,” but the governor criticized it as a “callous” act that could put people in grave danger during his 5pm update Tuesday.
He said, “This one makes me mad, and it should make you mad.”
There were bright spots like a local university that donated protective equipment to medical personnel as well as local food service and bourbon companies that teamed up to make sanitizer for hospitals.
But the governor stopped during the middle of the press conference, warning people not to hold any more “coronavirus parties.”
Here’s the thing: young people are less at risk of developing serious complications of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, but they may still require hospitalization for serious symptoms. And even someone who only contracts a mild case of the disease can spread it to vulnerable people.
