After hanging out together at a recently opened night club in Florida, a group of 16 friends all tested positive for the coronavirus.
International media reports confirmed that everyone in the group tested positive: some had flu like symptoms but none got seriously ill.
The ladies confessed said they are sure they contracted the virus on that outing.
Additional, other folks at the party messaged them that they also got sick after visiting the same bar that weekend.
Three of them said warn the public that the pandemic is not over yet and intend to raise awareness and get ahead of it.
One of them, Kat Layton they want to tell people it is really not ready for what we thought it was ready for and that it is too soon (to ease lockdown?).
They met up to hang out for a friend’s birthday at a crowded bar with no one wearing masks.
Layton said “Standing there in front of those people, we knew we were pushing it though believing at the time, that the virus was “out of sight, out of mind”.
Erika Crisp said their belief as hinged on the fact that they didn’t know anyone who had contracted it and they heard from their mayor and governor that everything was fine.
Dara Sweat revealed that within days, they started getting sick.
“Receiving the text messages that my friends were just boom, positive, boom, positive, boom, positive, back to back to back, it was overwhelming”.
They preach caution to everyone and advise people not to be reckless as restrictions are loosened up.
The state of Florida opens up from coronavirus restrictions and remained positive that it may not go on lockdown again even as it recorded a record number of new cases recently.
Gov. Ron DeSantis said emphatically that Florida is not shutting down but will continue to protect the vulnerable. “You know, we’re going to urge, continue to advise, particularly our elderly population to maintain social distancing, avoid crowds,” DeSantis pleaded.
As the world records over 8.3 million cases of the coronavirus (as as June 18), the United States of America (USA) sits at above 2.2 cases with over deaths.
