It's hard to imagine people being callous about the coronavirus outbreak at this stage, after quarantining and lockdown orders have been given in many countries. Following the instructions helps to slow down the rate of infections, and the sooner we all do our part, the sooner we can go back to normal life. And yet, some people just feel the need to extend our suffering for even longer.

Can it get more ridiculous than a coronavirus party?!

In the state of Kentucky in the US, a group of twenty-somethings decided to have a "coronavirus party", basically a regular party that took the coronavirus outbreak in jest. And to no one's surprise, one of the party attendants came down with COVID-19. State Governor Andy Beshear was incredibly upset about this kind of carelessness:

“This is the part where I, the person that tells everyone to be calm, have to remain calm myself,” Beshear said on Tuesday. “This one makes me mad, and it should make you mad. No more of these, anywhere, statewide, ever, for any reason.”

It might seem like all fun and games, but it's not

"We have a positive case today from someone who attended a coronavirus party," Beshear explained the situation. "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. We are battling for the health and even the lives of our parents and grandparents."

"Don't be so callous as intentionally to go to something and expose yourself to something that can kill other people. We ought to be much better than that... we simply can't have folks that are doing things like this," he added.

This "coronavirus party" is not the only instance of people being completely apathetic to the extent of the global pandemic. In Florida, students still went on spring break vacations last week and proudly proclaimed their lack of feat for the outbreak. And a church in the state of Louisiana still attracted over 1,000 people despite state ban on large gatherings.
