Patient, 30, Dies After Attending 'COVID Party' in Texas, Told Nurse 'I Think I Made a Mistake'
A 30-year-old patient in San Antonio, Texas, has died from the coronavirus after attending a “COVID party” and initially thinking that the rapidly-spreading illness “a hoax.”
A “COVID party” is a gathering “held by somebody diagnosed by the COVID virus and the thought is to see if the virus is real and to see if anyone gets infected," Dr. Jane Appleby, the Chief Medical Officer of Methodist Healthcare, said in a recorded statement, according to NEWS4.
"Just before the patient died, they looked at their nurse and said, 'I think I made a mistake, I thought this was a hoax, but it's not,' " Appleby said.
Appleby said she was sharing the patient’s story in an attempt to make sure people know that the coronavirus can affect anyone.
