Students in Alabama have been throwing parties in the hopes of intentionally infecting each other with Covid-19

College students in Tuscaloosa, Alabama have been holding “Covid parties” where an infected person is invited and they bet on who will catch the coronavirus first, according to The Hill.

  • Sonya McKinstry, the Tuscaloosa City Councilor, spoke to ABC News about the situation, saying:

“They put money in a pot and they try to get COVID. Whoever gets COVID first gets the pot. It makes no sense.”

  • The Tuscaloosa Fire Chief Randy Smith also added:

“We had seen over the last few weeks parties going on in the county, or throughout the city and county in several locations where students or kids would come in with known positive. We thought that was kind of a rumor at first...we did some additional research. Not only did the doctor’s offices help confirm it but the state confirmed they also had the same information.”

  • It is currently unclear whether any Covid-19 positive individuals infected anyone.
  • Per the report, “Alabama has confirmed more than 40,000 cases and 985 deaths, according to the state health department.”

Half of them are related to each other because their parents met at family reunions! Let Darwinism rule the day and pour chlorine in that shallow end of the gene pool!
