People are actually getting together at parties to catch COVID, hoping to build natural immunity to the virus so they can skirt vaccine pass restrictions.
I’m here to tell you this approach has its drawbacks. Like dying, for example.
An Austrian man who went to an Italian “coronavirus party” in an apparent bid to build immunity against COVID-19 has died from the virus, according to local media reports.
The 55-year-old died in Austria last week after contracting the virus. Similar parties are now prevalent in the Italian city of Bolzano and elsewhere across the province of South Tyrol, Rai Alto Adige reported, citing Patrick Franzoni, deputy co-ordinator of a COVID unit in the city.
Franzoni said he and colleagues are aware that some young people are deliberately attempting to catch COVID-19, with the ultimate goal of obtaining a “green pass” without being vaccinated against COVID-19.
In explaining the concept of “coronavirus parties,” Franzoni said at least one attendee is infected with COVID-19 and other partygoers deliberately try to catch the disease from that individual. They do so “not realizing that the virus is also dangerous in children and young people,” he said.
Vaccine stupidity. It’s global, baby.
