A Texas hospital says a patient who was a healthy young man died from coronavirus after attending a “COVID” party. The unidentified 30-year-old man died at Methodist Hospital in San Antonio, according to the hospital’s top doctor, Jane Appleby.
“This is a party held by somebody diagnosed with the COVID virus, and the thought is people get together to see if the virus is real and if anyone gets infected,” Appleby said.
The patient intentionally attending a party with an infected person. Just before the person died he looked at the nurse and he said, “I think I made a mistake. I thought it was a hoax but it's not,” she said.
“This is just one example of an avoidable death in a young member of our community,” she said. The hospital is treating other COVID-19 patients in their 20s and 30s who are “severely ill”.

Earlier this month, reports out of Tuscaloosa in Alabama quoted government officials as saying college students there were holding COVID parties with cash prizes being offered. Attendees put money in a pot that was awarded to the person who became infected first.
文章援引CBS旗下19 News网站报道，俄亥俄州37岁男子Richard Rose于3日去世，距离他新冠病毒检测呈阳性仅过了两天时间。而在此前数月，他在脸书上不断宣称“佩戴口罩是炒作”，同时频繁出入当地酒吧和餐厅。而在出现症状后他在脸书上写道，连坐着都感到呼吸困难。
Richard Rose, a 37-year-old Ohio man, died July 3 — just two days after testing positive for COVID-19, according to CBS affiliate 19 News.Throughout the prior months, Rose was vocal on Facebook about what he called "that damn hype" of mask wearing, and frequently checked in at bars and restaurants throughout the state. Once he developed symptoms, he wrote about them, too, saying he could barely breathe just sitting.
New Covid-19 infections have skyrocketed in the Gen Z and millennial age groups. And while the death rate is lower among young adults, many are struggling with long-term effects from the disease.
In Florida, the median age group for those infected back in March was people in their 60s. But in the past few weeks, that median age has plummeted to young adults in their early 30s, Gov. Ron DeSantis said in late June.
CNN总结道，面对新冠肺炎疫情，有些美国人民的误区之一便是：我年轻又健康，所以并不担心。（I'm young and healthy, so I'm not worried）
