In Texas, a 30-year-old man died after attending a coronavirus party: he thought the virus did not exist
A 30-year-old man from Texas died after attending a coronavirus party. He went there, believing that the virus is a hoax. Writes about it The Guardian.
“Shortly before the patient died, he looked at the nurse and said, 'I think I made a mistake, I thought the coronavirus was a hoax, but it’s not,” said Dr. Jane Appleby, chief physician at a Methodist hospital at San Antonio (TX).
Appleby said, “I don’t want to create a panic, and we are just trying to share some real life examples to help our community understand that this virus is very serious and can spread easily.”
A “Coronavirus Party” is a meeting held with someone with the coronavirus to find out if the virus is real and to see if anyone gets infected. Whoever gets infected first will receive all the money collected for entering the party.
Appleby said she had been prompted by an increase in her infection rate to reveal the details of the case. She believes that in 22% of testing, cases of coronavirus were detected, compared with 5% a few weeks ago.
According to her, a wider age range is being infected: several patients, aged 20-30 years, are seriously ill.
“Please wear masks, stay at home when you can, avoid crowded groups and wash your hands,” Appleby said.
Houston authorities urged the city to quarantine again, as hospitals are again loaded due to new cases of coronavirus.
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo said that in order for the fourth largest US city to cope with this surge, it is necessary to reintroduce isolation.
Last week, Texas continued to break records on confirmed cases and deaths associated with coronavirus. On Sunday, July 12th, state health officials reported 8 new cases, another 196 deaths, and a total of 80 people were hospitalized due to the virus.
The decision to isolate, however, rests with Republican Governor Greg Abbott, who resisted this move, saying that this should be the last resort.
