Some rich men in Alabama are alleged to have organized COVID-19 party to spread it more. They paid the attendants who infect others with it.
Alabama are having COVID-19 parties. People who are infected with the disease are encouraged to attend, in order to spread the disease. Once someone becomes infected and it is confirmed by a doctor, they receive a payout.
The move is becoming a big headache for authorities after CNN confirmed it.
According to CNN, “The parties are being held in Tuscaloosa, and infected people are urged to attend so others can intentionally contract the virus, City Council member Sonya McKinstry told CNN. She said she heard about the trend from fire officials.”
According to the report, initially, it was thought that this was all a rumour, but after authorities did some research on it which was determined that it was actually very much real.
“We thought that was kind of a rumour at first. We did some research, not only do the doctors’ offices confirm it, but the state confirmed they also had the same information,” she said.
Alabama authorities have launched a plan to curb such a heartless move down.
