Seeing a doctor after Spring break normally involves a test for VD, not getting quarantined with a disease that’s swamping the globe. Yet, here we are… welcome to 2020.
Spring breakers heard that the disease isn’t as dangerous to young people and took their chance to party.
There’s a REASON nobody ever accuses college kids of being fountains of wisdom.

Yup. That’s the reason.
How do you suppose that worked out for everybody?
The University of Tampa in Florida announced at least five students have tested positive for coronavirus after traveling with other students on a spring break trip.
“UT has been notified that five UT students, traveling together and with other UT students during Spring Break, have tested positive for COVID-19,” the university announced over the weekend. “We sincerely wish our students, and any others who may be affected, a full and rapid recovery.”
While tourist hotspots like Paris were on virtual lockdown, the college crowd had places to be and people to see.
I want you to watch this video and see for yourself the difference between how Paris one of the most touristic cities in the world is taking the Coronavirus threat and how Clearwater Florida is dealing with it so that it doesn’t lose tourism revenue during spring break #Covid_19 pic.twitter.com/CbUCf1VZ2r

But let’s not say they’ve got the market cornered on stupidity.
It’s not specifically American:
Social distancing in Australia.

Of course, not all foolishness comes dressed up as youth and inexperience. Sometimes, it comes dressed as political correctness.
Like the well-meaning ‘woke’ program in Italy:
Northern Italy has a huge Chinese immigrant population, many who traveled from Wuhan. Instead of testing and restricting these people, Italian authorities launched a ‘Hug a Chinese’ campaign in February. They are now paying the price. https://t.co/ksQdvhRW91

How well did that work out?
