Put your Parties on Hold

In case you’ve been under a rock for the past few months, we are in the middle of a global pandemic. There is a disease plaguing the world, infecting and killing, with no cure as of yet. Nearly the entire world is under quarantine as to lower the haste of Covid-19’s spread and try to allow hospitals to treat patients at a speed at which they can handle.

In all of this, you’d think this would be a time where people would put down their pitchforks and listen to the people that know what’s best for them. You’d think that there would finally be an event where the whole world could agree to put their gatherings on hold and follow social distancing, not for themselves, but for the innocent people they could spread the disease to whom very well could be at risk of death if they caught such a disease. You’d think these things, but it apparently isn’t the case.

As an example, social media influencer Jake Paul has thrown a party as of recently. A party. Right now. In the middle of a pandemic. You hopefully can see how such a thing is a problem in today’s life as, even if there were precautions made, germs were definitely spread as well as the potential spread of disease. Though, saying precautions were made would be a complete and utter overstatement, as Jake did nothing of the sort. No distancing, no masks, and dozens of party-goers in extremely close proximity to each other. As icing on the cake, there apparently is a possibility that one of the party attendees was infected during the time the party took place. After hearing such news, Jake Paul was barely fazed, saying he wasn’t worried. He then said in an interview that he will not promise to stop partying, as “Our leadership has failed us” being his only defense against his actions.

As for what we can do to combat this stupidity and recklessness is pretty much nothing. All we can do is take precautions, not for us, but for those innocent people. Use Jake Paul as an example of what not to do. We are still in a pandemic, and we can do better than this.
