Some college students say they will continue to party despite measures being taken in light of the coronavirus pandemic. Spring breakers seen in a viral video posted by CBS News have been so defiant while vacationing in Miami –– they're downplaying catching the deadly virus altogether and earning fierce criticism.
The coronavirus has killed more than 150 people in the U.S. so far, according to the latest official numbers. In addition, 20% of patients requiring coronavirus hospitalization were between the ages of 20-44, the Centers for Disease Control said. Still, Brady Sluder, one of the spring breakers in the video, said, "whatever happens happens" — showing little fear for the virus.
"If I get corona, I get corona," Sluder said. "At the end of the day, I'm not going to let it stop me from partying. I've been waiting, we've been waiting for Miami spring break for a while. About two months we've had this trip planned, two, three months, and we're just out here having a good time."
