MIAMI University students were busted by cops for throwing a house party despite knowing they had coronavirus.
Police bodycam footage showed several students sat on a porch in Ohio drinking and listening to music, without wearing masks.
“How many people are in the house? Twenty people inside? You might want to start clearing out, please,” one cop can be heard saying.
An officer ran one of the student’s ID’s and called him over. He asked: “I’ve never seen this before, there’s an input on the computer that said you tested positive for COVID?”
“Yes,” the student answers, before telling the officer that he was diagnosed a week ago and said everyone at the party also had coronavirus.
“How many other people have COVID?” the officer asked.
“They all do,” the student answered.
After the incident, police fined the six roommates and a guest $500 each.
More than 1,243 Miami University students have been diagnosed with COVID, according to the college’s health officials.
A spokesperson for the University told CBS: “We take these matters most seriously, and students can face suspension or dismissal for these types of violations.”
There are at least 138,000 confirmed cases in Ohio, and over 6.55million in the United States as a whole.
