The “Daily Show” host called out the young adults who were filmed this week while refusing to adhere to social distancing guidance on crowded beaches. One declared on camera that the virus wouldn’t stop him from partying. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has since closed the beaches, saying “the party’s over.”
“I’m sorry, what? You’re not going to let coronavirus stop you from? Coronavirus is. You don’t need to let it, OK?” Noah said. “Coronavirus is the Harvey Weinstein of diseases. It does not ask for consent, my friend.”
“Here’s the thing young people need to understand. Yes, coronavirus is most dangerous for old people, but that does not mean it’s not dangerous for young people too, OK? It can still get our ass into intensive care,” added Noah, later advising: “Get your shit together, young people. Coronavirus ain’t no joke.”
