Young adult who attended “coronavirus party” mocking social distancing gets coronavirus

A young adult in Kentucky who attended a “coronavirus party” mocking social distancing recommendations has tested positive for coronavirus.

Governor Andy Beshear revealed this story during a press conference today.

Buzzfeed reports someone in Kentucky tested positive for the novel coronavirus after they attended a “coronavirus party” for people in their twenties, Gov. Andy Beshear said at a press conference Tuesday.

“Anyone who goes to something like this may think they’re indestructible, but it’s somebody else’s loved one that they’re going to hurt,” Beshear said.

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.

“This is the part where I, the person that tells everyone to be calm, have to remain calm myself,” he said. “This one makes me mad, and it should make you mad.”
