A young woman who bragged about going partying despite testing positive for coronavirus has sparked an inquiry at a US university.
Texas Tech University is investigating complaints about a student who broadcasted a video of herself partying despite apparently having COVID 19.
The video broadcasting on social media displays an unknown young woman filming herself gloating about having the virus, which is ravaging the United States.
In the expletive-ridden clip, she can be heard to say that she has COVID and that the whole world has it.
The University’s Dean of Students tweeted this week that they’d received a report and were aware of the video related to COVID and that the matter was being handled by the Office of the Dean of Students and Student Conduct.
In the footage, which has been drawing fury, she shoots a selfie mode as she addresses the camera at what seems to be a bustling bash.
The woman says: “Everyone’s like ‘don’t you have COVID? Don’t you literally have COVID?’
“Yes, I f***ing have COVID. The whole world has COVID.”
She then flips the camera which appears to show the party she’s attending as she scans a large outdoor space alive with young people.
She continues: “All of these people have COVID. So stop getting on my tip, stop getting on my tip. Like, I’m having a good time.”
The identity of the young woman and whether she attends Texas Tech University as a student has not been established, and it’s not apparent whether she had a confirmed case of COVID 19.
Twitter user Taylor Smith posted a copy of the clip online, reporting that this is what’s happening at Texas Tech.
“Side note, I do not know this girl but she was brave enough to post this for others to see! If you are selfish like this with no regards for others safety, f*** off!”
Writing from her account @tayylorcsmith, she claimed she had reported the video to the woman’s sorority at the university, and the Dean of Students.
Some saw no problem with the woman who filmed the clip’s activities, likening it to a ‘chickenpox party’, saying if all the attendees had the virus they didn’t risk spreading it to each other.
Many were disgusted by the claims of the woman in the footage, saying she was spreading coronavirus with impunity by mixing in public areas when she should have been isolating.
She looks like a true winner – her parents must be so proud of her and if you’re going to be that dumb, at least don’t do it in front of the camera.
And if she does have it, which she likely doesn’t, then she should have more consideration for those that have had to spend months on a ventilator, many of which have died – this virus is not a joke.
However, I do agree with her on the whole world has COVID because COVID 19 was here way before the case of extraordinary phenomena was reported in Wuhan, China, and by the time we did identify the unusual phenomena called COVID 19, four billion people already had it.
But that doesn’t mean that you have impunity forever like smallpox, measles, and polio.
Immunity lasts for three months and even if you have COVID 19 and you don’t show any symptoms and get through recovery, you developed antibodies, however, immunity only lasts for three months, thus making you vulnerable again.
