It looks as though some people are taking the ‘herd immunity’ approach into their own hands as the NY Post reports this week on morons hosting ‘COVID-19’ parties in order to intentionally catch the virus.

Pretty much the entire world is staying indoors so that they DON’T catch the virus, but in the Washington state county of Walla Walla a new trend has emerged in which healthy individuals hang out with an infected person in hopes of contracting coronavirus and then overcoming it.
The county said in a press release:
Walla Walla County health officials are receiving reports of COVID-19 parties occurring in our community, where non-infected people mingle with an infected person in an effort to catch the virus.
Officials discovered this was happening while conducting contact tracing, and found at least 25 people have come down with the virus after attending these parties. Great.
Meghan DeBolt, director of the county Department of Community Health, says:
It’s after the fact that we hear from cases. We ask about contacts, and there are 25 people because: ‘We were at a Covid party.’
It’s unacceptable. It’s irresponsible.
Whether you think the media and government have been fearmongering over the virus, I think it’s safe to say that NO ONE in their right mind wants to catch it. Hence why we’ve all locked ourselves indoors for the past few months. And yet here are these idiots throwing COVID-19 parties and putting themselves and everybody else in danger.
I get why they’re doing it – they want to get the virus so that they are presumably immune afterwards. Except no one knows for sure whether you can be reinfected or not, so these morons could be making themselves sick for no reason (it would dumb either way, but that would make it even more brainless).
The most annoying part is that this lot probably think they’re really smart for trying to get coronavirus on purpose, despite the fact they have no real clue how the virus works. At least 25 of these pricks are experiencing symptoms and clogging up medical services, so let’s just hope the party was worth it. May as well call the next one a ‘natural selection party’ at this rate.
