A 21-year-old woman from Tennessee who boasted on social media of not taking the coronavirus epidemic seriously has been diagnosed with the fatal disease, according to a report.
Ireland Tate joked about not following the instructions to stay home and socialize in the midst of the pandemic a few days before she got sick, the WZTV news station reported.
In a social media video, the Nashville resident told her subscribers that she “was aware that we are supposed to quarantine and distance ourselves” to “keep everyone safe” – but that she was not worried.
” Cool. I get it. I just don’t think I’m going to get the virus, “said Tate in the video.
But a few days later, Tate found himself suffering from symptoms associated with the dangerous bug and tested positive.
“I feel like someone is sitting on my chest at all times,” she said. “It’s really difficult to breathe. I coughed until my throat was bleeding. ”
Tate said she probably got the virus from a friend in her group of friends and is now warning other kids to stay home.
“While it may not affect you, you can affect someone’s grandmother or grandfather or aunt or uncle or sister,” said Tate at the point of sale.
