As the governors across America are in close contact with President Trump and Vice President Pence, they deliver announcements to the people in every state. Press conferences are happening every day and providing the same message to hopefully pound into every American head STAY HOME!!! Social distancing is necessary if people have to leave for basic necessities or emergencies.
The governor of Kentucky, Andy Beshear, made it clear with a simple list of dos and don’ts when he delivered his press conference Tuesday evening. Apparently, some people do not know how to follow simple instructions.
Governor Beshear told the people of Kentucky, Do: follow all instructions and continue to practice social distancing. Continue to help the community by providing meals to those in need and donate any medical supplies which are not needed within the households.
The list for Dont’s was short and sweet. Don’t: Attend or host any “coronavirus parties.” Do people listen? NO! In fact, some idiots decided to make it their business to have one of these “coronavirus parties.” And guess what? One of those parties had and attendee test positive for COVID-19.
Now everyone who attended the party has to remain quarantined for the next 14 days all because they didn’t listen. According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, all of the party crowd was in their 20s.
Beshear responded to this foolishness by saying, “This is the part where I, the person that tells everybody to be calm, have to remain calm myself. 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.”
The governor added, “We are battling for the health and even the lives of our parents and our grandparents. Don’t be so callous as to intentionally go to something and expose yourself to something that can kill other people. We ought to be much better than that.”
Beshear concluded, “I guess thinking they were invincible flaunting the mass gathering prohibition. This is something that no one should be doing across the commonwealth. We all owe each other a duty to protect each other. And we simply can’t have folks that are doing things like this.”
Across the US on Wednesday, the count was around 54,000 people who contracted the virus and 783 who died from COVID-19. Kentucky has 163 of those cases, with only four dead. Across the nation, we find where the younger generation is the most defiant and causing a mass amount of problems where the virus spreading is happening.
They either believe they are immortal or they are anarchist who is against the government and or any authority. These “coronavirus parties” are in complete defiance to society and do not follow any of the mandates put into place where everyone should be trying to stay at a safe distance from one another. This is how the virus continues to spread like the California wildfires.
Along with foolishness, it is also a selfish way to go about these times where the people in their 60s on up are at risk of having more complicated cases and better chances of death. These idiots are not thinking about anyone but themselves. What has this generation come to?
Along with their defiance, it also makes it ten times harder for those who do follow the rules. These fools will make everyone who is listening have to suffer that much longer. All because of a party? Really?
These young people should be led as an example to everyone in the world. Yes, they are young, but they are NOT immune to the COVID-19. They can still contract it and die from it, even though the chances are less for their generation.
People need to realize this is not a lockdown as of yet. If this continues, we will be under a mandatory lockdown as we saw in Italy. Governor Beshear told reporters, “Stay healthy at home. That doesn’t mean boarded in your home. It means you still, no matter where we go, will be able to get your essentials out in the community, and it also means you’ll be able to get out and get the type of exercise that you need.”
The governor would not release information on the party anymore but ended his press conference with these words. “This is one that makes me mad, and it should make you mad. We should forgive that person, but no more of these anywhere, statewide, ever for any reason.”
