A person attended a coronavirus party in Kentucky and then tested positive for the virus, Gov. Andy Beshear said at a news conference Tuesday.
The governor said he hopes he doesn’t have to speak about this incident again and reminded himself to forgive the person who attended the party.
"This is one that makes me mad,” the governor said, discouraging the action. “We have to be much better than that.”
Bashear later said the “coronavirus party” was a group of “young adults” who intentionally got together, “thinking they were invincible" and purposely defying the state’s guidance to practice social distancing.
Beshear stopped short of naming the county where the patient is from or where the party took place, not wanting to identify the person who “made a mistake.”
At least 163 cases of coronavirus have been reported in Kentucky, the governor said.
