Thousands of American college students ignored all coronavirus warnings from health officials. The students spend time at Sections of South Beach even though the government warned us to limit social gatherings to no more than ten people.
Florida also implemented its own measures and announced 11 pm curfews. All the bars and nightclubs are closed as well.
However, that didn’t stop them, with some even willing to contract the virus instead of canceling their parties. ‘If I get corona, I get corona,’ one of them. ‘At the end of the day, I’m not going to let it stop me from partying.’
Since Florida officials move to expel the hundreds of thousands of spring breakers, we wonder what will happen once the party’s over.
Most of them will return to hometowns across the country where any exposure to the virus could set off a contagion.
“The students who are going and partying at spring break potentially are feeding into a world where they are stuck in their houses for weeks on end later on.”
