Many indulging in spring break don’t seem to care at all despite the severe nature of things worldwide due to the coronavirus outbreak. Those that were interviewed continue to party as much as they can despite the repeated warnings for social distancing.
Completely ignoring the nationwide requested social distancing rules that have been put in place to curb the coronavirus outbreak, as hard to believe as it may seem, but there are currently thousands of people in Florida for spring break. Despite warnings from several public health experts, footage from beaches throughout Florida show them packed almost to capacity with spring breakers.
They are also hitting up any establishment that’s still open aside from frequenting the beaches. Regardless of how limited the hours and dine-in seating is, their goal is to party as much as they can without thinking about the highly contagious virus that has taken over the world.
Brady Sluder, who came all the way from Ohio for a Florida spring break, said this:
“If I get corona, I get corona. At the end of the day, I’m not gonna let it stop me from partying. We’re just out here having a good time. Whatever happens, happens.”
Others interviewed expressed similar attitudes and were more upset that businesses were closed or had limited hours than they were about contracting the deadly disease. To date, there have been 192 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Florida.
