Young Adult From Kentucky Tests Positive After "Coronavirus Party"

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear had to urge his residents to stop having "coronavirus parties" after at least one individual tested positive for COVID-19 following a large gathering.

Beshear said the infection was one of 39 new cases reported Tuesday. Despite recommendations to practice social distancing and avoid crowds, the person who tested positive was at a "coronavirus party" with a large group of young adults in their 20s.

“This is the part where I, the person that tells everybody to be calm, have to remain calm myself, because anyone who goes to something like this may think that they are indestructible, but it’s someone else’s loved one that they are going to hurt," he said. "We are battling for the health and even the lives of our parents and our grandparents. Don’t be so callous as to intentionally go to something and expose yourself to something that can kill other people. We ought to be much better than that.”
