I'm sure most of us have come across this video somewhere online in the past few days:
"If I get Corona, I get Corona. At the end of the day, I'm not going to let it stop me from partying. I've been waiting, we've been waiting for Miami spring break for a while. About two months we've had this trip planned, two, three months, and we're just out here to have a good time."
To no one's surprise, some college students soon after partying on spring break in Florida beaches have tested positive for COVID-19
UT has been notified that five UT students, traveling together and with other UT students during Spring Break, have tested positive for COVID-19. We sincerely wish our students, and any others who may be affected, a full and rapid recovery. https://t.co/MXl4e1v3gh— The University of Tampa (@UofTampa) March 21, 2020
This should go as a warning to those with a similar mindset that this virus is not something to joke around about. It might be tough to stop partying, especially for a frat bro, but you need to put your and others' health as your top priority. This story is a great example of situational irony but it's hard to sit back and laugh when there are now people's lives at stake.
The best thing we can do is just stay at home and self-isolate. Pick up a new hobby or a video game you've been meaning to play. Use your time to perfect a new skill or learn a new instrument. Just don't go out!
