SAN ANTONIO, Texas – A doctor from Methodist Hospital in San Antonio said a young man died after attending a Covid-19 party, according to ABC affiliate KSAT.

“One of the things that was heart wrenching that he said to his nurse was, you know, I think I made a mistake. And this young man went to a Covid party,” said Dr. Jane Appleby, Chief Medical Officer at Methodist Hospital.

Appleby said the man who died was 30 years old.

“He didn’t really believe. He thought the disease was a hoax. He thought he was young and he was invincible and wouldn’t get affected by the disease,” Dr. Appleby said.

Appleby said lately she has been hearing about Covid-19 parties.

“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,” Dr. Appleby said.

She said some young patients don’t realize how sick they really are.

“People will come in initially and they don’t look so bad. They don’t look really sick, but when you check their oxygen levels and you check their lab tests, they’re really sicker than they appear on the surface,” Appleby said.

Appleby said if you are not feeling well, have a high fever, cough and severe muscle aches, you should get help.

“My plea to our community and especially all of our young folks in the community is to take it seriously. Wear your mask,” Appleby said.

  1. Sounds like “covid party” is more a cover for protests and riots. The timing of these increases coincides perfectly with all the protests and the age groups.

    1. Delusional? Based on his age and stupidity he was most likely a Libtard/Democrap like you. A so called invincible millennial. A communist Bernie or dementia Joe Biden follower. The leftist BLM protesters/rioters were doing what amounted to a COVID-19 party.

      1. If you would watch the news every once in awhile you’d know it was most likely people aligned with the right wing as they think the virus is a hoax.

        1. Watch leftist fake news? Get real. You’re funny. Wrong. The hoax was blaming Trump for causing the virus not the virus pandemic itself. So for example Tulane U. students partying in large groups are right wing hoaxers? You missed that article? I’m starting to believe the others when they say you are so dumb. TRUMP 2020!!!!
