A 30-year old American man has died after attending a “COVID Party” hosted by an infected individual.

The man, who comes from Texas, thought the virus was a “joke”, and attended the party to have a good time with his friends.

However, he later regretted his decision of going to the party after contracting the virus, whose condition worsened severely after.

“Someone will be diagnosed with the disease, and they’ll have a party to invite their friends over to see if they can beat the disease”, mentioned Dr. Jane Appleby, chief medical officer at the Methodist Hospital in San Antonio.

Many private parties are still going on in the US.

As of today, over 3.37 million people have been infected in the US, peaking at over 70,000 new cases daily.
