COVID-19 has changed a lot of how people today are transacting business. Some places will not let people in the doors until they have placed a mask over their mouths.
Other businesses still have to limit the number of people that they can seat or serve. But with all of the hype and caution that is floating around, there are those of the younger generations that see COVID-19 as nothing more than a version of the cold that already is around. They see all the political pandering going on between political parties because it is an election year.
The state of Alabama has been hard just like all the other states. But now it seems that some of the youth in the state are throwing what state leaders are calling “COVID parties.” These parties intend to defy public orders to social distance.
Their purpose is to invite infected people to the parties and then take bets on which person at the party will get sick first. They are seeing and treating the pandemic like it is a betting game.
The irresponsible students are putting their lives on the line and the lives of other people for the sole purpose of making a few dollars.
The younger generation is starting to be affected more by the virus now that it has swept through the elderly. The younger people are out and about in society and are becoming infected.
But with the infection comes an immunity that is only gaining strength in the country. Soon the virus will lose its foothold on the people of America and be a sad memory of the past.
But these parties that the college students are throwing are only making things worse. Everyone gets infected and then they leave the party and infect others that were never at the event.
The Tuscaloosa City Councilor is Sonya McKinstry and she is the one that reported the event to the media. People need to know that these parties are taking place and what it means for the rest of the people.
Randy Smith, the fire chief, stated that the fire department had received reports that these parties were taking place. They were purposely inviting people that had tested positive. At first, it was thought to be a rumor. But it was found to be true.
Smith stated that “Not only did the doctor’s offices help confirm it, but the state confirmed they had the same information.” These students were being reckless with their health and it was going to affect everyone else that they would come into contact with later on. The sickening part is that they were gambling over who would get sick first.
McKinstry also stated that “They put money in a pot and they try to get COVID. Whoever gets COVID first gets the pot. It makes no sense.”
Nothing that college students do makes any real sense. They are indoctrinated by Democrats and expect to make a good choice. That is like asking a cat to be a dog. The Democrats never make rational choices. They are harmful and it is always the other person that gets hurt.
Authorities are trying to break up the parties that they find out about. But the task is hard since the parties are not always announced to the public. McKinstry also stated that “It’s nonsense. But I think when you’re dealing with the mind frame of people who are intentionally doing stuff like that and they’re spreading it intentionally, how can you truly fight something that people are constantly trying to promote?”
The authorities are trying to deal with insane people.
Anyone that tests positive has to quarantine for 14 days. Any deviation of the quarantine will bring a fine of $500. These are the things that are contributing to the spread of the virus. The protests have not helped much either.
As the people have purposefully crammed themselves together which has led to them all getting sick. The fear is that the hospitals are going to find themselves running out of beds. People need to stay safe for a little while longer and then life can get back to normal.
