College students in Florida test positive for coronavirus after spring break trip

TAMPA, Fl. (WFLA) — Five University of Tampa students are recovering after testing positive for COVID-19 during spring break, the school said.

The university said the students were traveling together and with other UT students during spring break before testing positive. The school didn’t say where they went during their break or if they lived on or off campus.

The school did send its well wishes.

“We sincerely wish our students, and any others who may be affected, a full and rapid recovery,” UT posted on Twitter Saturday night.

The university switched to online classes only on March 17.

and since other people "here and abroad" weren't interviewed, we don't know WHAT they said.

31. This is just how kids are.

A virus like this is not going to phase them or change their behavior and I'm not sure it's fair to expect otherwise. Young adults that fully understand the implications of the virus, beyond their own general lack of vulnerability, are pretty enlightened.

Young adults don't vote, they drink till they pass out, they jump off tall things and they go to war willingly. They don't understand mortality (as if any of us truly do).

8. I don't actually care who he is. The pic is MSNBC's fault, for interviewing him.

My theory: If you want a serious news item, don't interview drunk college kids.

But, my degree's not in Journalism, so what do I know?

I'm sure he's reached "rock star" status at his college, his fraternity.

Stay safe.

11. On another level though...

Michael Dell tweeted that nobody in that video need apply to Dell tech. HR departments do keep track of this kind of lifestyle noteriety.

These folks may find a lot of doors locked for a very long time.

Obviously, all these kid's moms and dads were too busy volunteering in hospital emergency rooms to have had that crucial conversation with them before going to the beach.......

It might open their eyes to why some individuals are taken out of the reproductive process of their species.

The colleges and universities can now easily determine who is not bright enough to be included in their institute of higher learning. Check the tapes...

Not exactly. And I have no doubt they (springbreakers) are now spreading it to other states.

21. I've been watching Florida since I saw the post a week or two ago...

... about the defiant Baptist service of 10,000 people. There's a post today about a 3 seating revival. Then Rachel a few nights ago showed Florida almost solid red with unusual temps recorded on a certain brand of thermometer. And then the photos of crowds on the beaches. I'm sure the recent rise in percentage of people infected under 45 is because we oldsters were smart enough to start staying home.

So I don't blame the kids as much as I blame the Republicans who lied to them.

Every single one of those dumb motherfuckers has my best wishes for a full and speedy recovery from the illness that they were fucking braindead enough to actively seek out and infect themselves with.

Get well soon, you dumb shitheads.

30. They'll survive. But the parents and grandparents they infected might not.

They were lucky they were able to get tested. Symptomatic people in Los Angeles can't get tests.

Los Angeles County health officials advised doctors to give up on testing patients in the hope of containing the coronavirus outbreak, instructing them to test patients only if a positive result could change how they would be treated.

33. So NOT Surprised.

It's gonna get worse.

Any college that stays open after spring break is going to get hit. And the employees of that college, the janitors, the food servers, are going to get hit.

And the schools that quarantine - the kids are going to take it home to their parents.

Give it a week.

It's going to be ugly.

If we're able to test, I'm going to guess that we're at 200,000 by March 30th, and in all the little obscure college towns in all the little states that with the MAGAts that thought it was a liberal hoax and aren't doing social distancing, and are going to their megachurches and praying to god and tithing to make sure they don't get it.
