Spring break revelers in Florida are partying like there’s no tomorrow on Clearwater Beach. This despite mounting fears surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.
While the super contagion sweeps the globe, bringing countries to their knees, befuddling medical infrastructure and state leaders alike, the kids took to the waves.
The popular spring break destination usually packs in college kids for the university holiday, and this year is apparently no exception.
Announcers’ commentary accompanies the views of the shore line taken from helicopter.
“What are we looking at, this is a lot of people,” said the WFLA news anchor. “So if you think the beaches are here being impacted by coronavirus, Covid-19, and the new cases that are emerging here in Florida. This is Clearwater Beach here, everybody.”
“And one of the questions we were asked here earlier were whether or not the beaches were gonna be impacted by what’s going on with coronavirus here in the state of Florida. And from the looks of it, this looks to be a pretty busy day at the beaches. A lot of people here in the water.”
“We know that Miami Beach and Fort Lauderdale Beach and some others in south Florida have closed.”
Floating about in little rubber rafts, canoodling on beach towels, slathering each other with sun screen, these lazy sunbathers have no care for the coronavirus.
