COVID party?

abcnews.go.com/US/30-year-man-…

So...this is a story about a 30-year-old male who believed COVID was a hoax, so he attended a party that featured COVID-infected patients in the crowd, then...die due to the COVID.

Seriously, is this a thing in Western countries? Because COVID is a serious topic that shouldn't be taken lightly. And some of the Western people even advocate not to wear masks, that would just make the situation even worse.

Please, I know freedom is important, but your life and other people's lives are important, too.

Wish it was just a 'Western thing' but it's not, across the globe 'healthy people' are believing that their age/status/'race' makes them immune to the worst effects of Covid.

This year the Darwin Awards are going to be overwhelmed with stoopid death candidates.

I'm starting to think that people who deliberately ignore these precautions should be charged with attempted murder, possibly even murder itself if someone dies because of it. This is ridiculous. This virus would've been gone by now if people had just used their brains and done what they were told.

Honestly Its hard to believe the level of stupid some people are. I am constantly doubting myself this is real.

Unless the covid party was composed of stupid tidepod challenge doing teenagers from the most low IQ in the location of Florida, I won't believe it.

Agreed, the right has fewer ways to act stupid because most of there ideas work in practice, still doesn't stop some of them from doing stupid things. I think this one news story might be fake(because the article is written in a strange manner) but the idea that some people are acting that way is still believable.

i'd be glad if only the stupid and reckless die of corona. 
the problem is that they can spread the virus and let everyone else get infected.

maybe China and Japan should face time (Skype, Discord, etc) with people and proper educate them on how to wear a mask, because the people I see are completely clueless.  disturbing enough encountered two people that refused to wear a mask because of makeup, another because of their hair....  save some money?

Nope, mainly because we are f by the SARS before, so we have more experience with this kind of stuff.
And...not every Eastern country has "freedom" if you ask me, so they can only follow what the government wants them to do. Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea are relatively free compared to other Eastern countries, but even with that we still take the virus seriously(Our government locked down our island and got scold in Jan, but turns out to be the right decision).
Plus we are more focused on collectivism a little bit more, so that could be one of the reasons why conspiracies affect relatively small here, if you spread shitty rumor you might face some serious consequences.

Honestly, let the idiots weed themselves out. Any person favoring freedom over safety and intellect cannot be saved in any way, especially if they believe the virus is a hoax, when a Google search will very easily prove otherwise. The US is far past overdue for an idiot cleansing anyway, and I'd much rather they die now and spare the rest of us the trouble of having to deal with them later when the virus eventually leaves the country

Lol. Does a completely overcrowded (the last few times one could almost stack people...) smoking area in a moderately ventilated cellar in a Metal-bar count as a corona party?  

In the moist and cheerful together, one quickly forgets corona in favor of a beautiful foam corona on the one or six obligatory beer.Laughing

It does seem odd no one has been recording these parties offhand, though I often worry about my brother when he goes to group meetings with his church friends. People really need to stop doing this stuff for at least 3 weeks and avoid contact with each other for over 2 weeks, or we are going to have even more severe casualties. Especially since the virus can cause a lot of blood vessels to get damaged during your stay in the hospital, so even if you survive, you'll still be in a lot of pain and possibly receive severe head injuries for a very long time.

I'm guessing he must have had a severe health problem prior to getting corona, statistically speaking covid 19 isn't any worse for the youth and healthy adults then the typical flu.  especially now that we have both physical and medical treatments for the virus! and of course ABC is going to ham the story up because it fits their narrative...  I wouldn't put to much weight into what they say... 

that said the only thing this virus really is a problem for is the elderly, especially those living in nursing homes. as some of our governors have found out the hard way "Cough Cuomo, Walz, Whitmer" when they had sick patients put into these homes rather then spending a little more to have them isolated into their own care facilities... 

not sure i trust the overall numbers either... both cases and deaths are likely inflated by the common cold corona skewing the testing numbers and the deaths being skewed by improper classification... 

eventually between heard immunity, an iffy vaccine, and natural evolution the virus will weaken itself and join it's corona brother from the same wet market mother as just another common cold bug. 

this is what happened to Spanish flu, the Hong Kong flu, the swine flu, SARs 2003, and many other viruses. it's not adventitious to kill the host after all!

that's like 7 months of culminated learning about this subject man... I've been following this subject sense January when i first started seeing memes and news from independent YouTube channels because the MSM was to hyperfocused on the impeachment to give a rats ass. 

I saw the media downplay the virus when they finally realized it was a thing.  I saw them attack trump for trying to fight it back then. to fight him on any treatments that where found tested and proven to work from many doctors across the globe! I've seen the data shift from a hard 5% death rate, to the .1% rate it has now. I saw the CDC and WHO, Doc Fauchi and many others flip flop back and fourth... now the media is blaming people who don't want to wear masks yet this month of riots in the streets somehow hasn't spread the virus like wildfire??? 

I was actually terrified at first but as i've learned i'm feeling like it'll be fine. we're well past the lockdown phase... it's to wide spread. we need to keep it out of the nursing homes, and get back to work. get back to school. get back to our lives...  boost your immune system with fresh air, sunlight, vitamin D, don't touch strangers, and wash your hands. 

it'll be fine.

Jesus has your head been up your arse? Evidence shows that surviving Covid once may not be the end of it and that there are potentially long lasting effects beyond respiratory problems.

But cool yeah, just let the virus run rampant through the population because if it doesn't wipe out the entirety of humanity then it's all fine? What the hell is wrong with you people?

Remind us how you lot were saying that exact same thing at the start and that it wouldn't reach even 10,000's let alone millions of cases? Tell me, who was right? Did we or did we not have a massive number of cases? Now the left warned about opening too quickly without precautions, idiots like you said it was all fine. Do please tell me, have the number of new cases been going up or down? Are records for number of new cases not being hit nearly every day? In fact tell me ANYTHING your lot who have constantly dismissed this have said which has actually been correct.
Why are you lot so far up your arses you can't even admit you are wrong and people are dying because of it? 100,000's dead is not pessimistic fear mongering, it is reality you insufferable little shit.
Now your side are trying to smear Fauci and make out he is the one who has been getting it all wrong and saying incorrect things / contradicting himself. Do you lot have no fucking sense of introspection at all!? How can ANYONE who supports Trump accuse anyone else of royally fucking up the response to this and not knowing what they are talking about? What sort of perverse mental gymnastics do you lot need to perform to come to that conclusion?

I think this is a false news story. The guy wasn't expecting to get the virus and he did. There was no party. ABC is notorious for spreading false news that is heavily biased.

Nobody expects to get the virus. Nobody expects to die from it. But they sometimes do. That is all I got out of this story. It's no different if you get cancer. You can't predict that. You just get it.

What the story is really saying is, you should fear the unknown. Stay at home and vegetate just in case.

except cancer is not contagious. this shit is. if a Covid patient sneezes on you, you can get Covid. this is why we wear masks. to reduce the chances of airborne transmission.


no. dont stay home all the time. go out for walks too. just wear a mask if youre going inside public buildings (like the mall) or meeting people from another household.
