Students in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 have been attending parties in the city and surrounding area as part of a disturbing contest to see who can catch the virus first, a city council member told ABC News on Wednesday.


quote:

"They put money in a pot and they try to get COVID. Whoever gets COVID first gets the pot. It makes no sense," McKinstry said. "They're intentionally doing it."

Tuscaloosa Fire Chief Randy Smith told the City Council on Tuesday that he has confirmed the students' careless behavior.

20 year olds getting COVID and spreading it amongst each other isn't the worst thing as long as they stay away from older people.

Great, so they don't ever go home to see parents or grandparents? I'm all for it as long as they are quarantined.

I've seen this story multiple times, but that's the first I've heard about subpoenas for contact-tracing compliance and $2k/day fines.

Yikes.

Probably not that often. I’m in my late twenties and haven’t gone to see my grandparents since all this started.

Gives a whole new meaning to the value of a U of A Education.

I agree, the danger is going home and killing the older members of their family ...intentionally.

Every herd needs to culled.

It’s not the worst thing to purposely try to contact a virus which will be inevitably spread elsewhere? Yeah it’s not as bad as murdering someone but it’s one of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard. Do you purposely try to get a cold or the chicken pox?

Yes, people have chicken pox parties to get the chicken pox...

And yes, it's actually good for you and your immune system to catch things like the cold.

It's actually bad for your immune system to not expose it to virus and such.

But hey, I'm sure people acting out of fear is much more reliable than an immune system that developed over millions of years and is what actually kills this virus in all people who survive.

How many times is this article going to be linked here? Can we not just make ONE thread on this and pool all the comments into one?

Yeah, 50 years ago when you were a fricking kid. And we knew that you could only get chicken pox once. I also know that it’s good for the immune system for people to catch the flu. Does that mean you do it on purpose now? You understand these retards are doing this shite ON PURPOSE correct? For a virus we know very little about. It’s the definition of stupidity.

chicken pox parties was a thing, actually. Neighborhood kid gets it, have a get together and make sure the kids are playing in close contact to the infected. Kids didn't die of chicken pox, and would have immunity to smallpox.
Flattening the curve has never been about preventing the spread; ideally we have a consistent amount of people being infected, rather than waves, so that hospital beds, staff, testing equipment, etc. are never overwhelmed by demand.
These kids are smart, even if it sounds counterintuitive.

Btw, do people know that the first vaccine was for smallpox back in the 1700's?

Do you know how they did it? They purposely infected people with cowpox.

The cowpox was a much more mild virus than the smallpox virus. But getting the cowpox also gave immunity to smallpox. It was developed because someone noticed that people who got cowpox never got smallpox.

So to build peoples immunity up, they gave them cowpox on purpose.

And your body is doing these same things naturally every day when it comes in contact with different virus. Well except for now, because everyone's immune system is getting weaker due to social distancing, lockdowns etc. I'd include masks in that list, but it would be pretending they help when they don't.

I know, a long arse time ago. Do you see anybody doing it now? No? Because we have vaccines and people aren’t ignorant about it anymore

Yes you do purposely let your other children get chicken pox when one of them contracts it. At least that is what used to happen.

And we now know that virus can cause issues down the road like shingles. This virus is evolving every day and we have no clue what the longterm effects will be.
