Corona Virus: Man Ignores Quarantine Order To Party
The Corona Virus is steadily spreading throughout the United States at an alarming rate. There are many that are not aware that they are infected until they have already spread it and unfortunately with the long incubation time it is hard to tell right off the bat. But what if you were told that you were infected, would you listen to your doctor and quarantine yourself or would you do as one New Hampshire man did and go out to a party full of healthcare providers?
"New Hampshire's first coronavirus patient, a hospital employee, went to an event tied to Dartmouth business school on Friday despite being told to stay isolated, officials say, and all others who went to the event are now being told to stay isolated."
"The party was" a mixer for doctors and college students that very night and was confirmed as having the virus days later. Following his social foray, the partygoer has been ordered into quarantine by the state's health commissioner.
"The individual is complying now," New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services Communications Director Jake Leon said, according to the Times."
"The venue's general manager told the news station that there had been between 175 and 200 people at the event, plus seven staff members working there."
"The announcement on Tuesday came as state health officials said a second person in the state is presumed to have the new coronavirus, COVID-19. That person was in close contact with the first patient, and the officials expect more coronavirus cases may be found as they investigate.
The second, presumed patient is a man, according to the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, which didn't provide additional details or say exactly where he came into contact with the first patient."
The man should be punished in some way. The Corona Virus can be deadly to the elderly and those with weakened immune systems. There is no telling as to how many he infected all so he could mingle at a party. His reckless behavior could result in a fellow American's death.
