Based on an article from Inquirer, Tuscaloosa Fire Chief Randy Smith stated:
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 positives.
Furthermore, authorities initially believed that the news were mere rumors. But, upon conducting further investigations, even the local doctor’s offices confirmed the claims and had the same information.
Aside from this, students were also having “competitions” on whoever could get infected with the virus first in “COVID-19 parties”. Moreover, the authorities said the organizers of the events specifically invited those who were infected.
The sickening and life threatening event had a “pot money”. Afterward, whoever would get COVID-19 first would take the prize.
As of writing, there had been over 10 million cases of COVID-19 reported worldwide. Of that number, over 500,000 have already succumbed to the deadly disease.
