FRANKFORT, Ky. — “This is one that makes me mad.”
Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear revealed his disappointment Tuesday after revealing one of the patients who tested positive for COVID-19 attended a “coronavirus party.”
“Anyone who goes to something like this, may think that they are indestructible but it’s someone else’s loved one that they are going to hurt,” Gov. Beshear said. “We are battling for the lives of our parents and our grandparents. Don’t be so callous as to intentionally go to something and expose yourself to something that could kill other people.”
The governor didn’t give specifics on where the party took place but later elaborated, saying it was a group of young adults in their 20’s flaunting the gatherings. He said these gatherings must stop immediately.
“Don’t simply fight to be the exception of the rule,” he stressed.
Beshear continued to stress the importance of flattening the curve of coronavirus by social distancing.
So far, Kentucky has 39 new cases, bringing the statewide total 163.
