Americans expressed outrage over viral photos taken at a crowded pool party at a water park in Wuhan, China, where the coronavirus originated.
Photos show thousands of Wuhan residents cooling off in a massive swimming pool at a water park in Wuhan in China’s central Hubei province on Saturday, Aug. 15.
No one in the crowd appeared to be wearing a face mask or social distancing. The central Chinese city was the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic in December 2019.
The Wuhan water park was closed earlier this year after the coronavirus swept through Wuhan, killing thousands. The park reopened in June and has been crowded ever since.
Social media users expressed outrage over the photos, especially since millions of Americans can’t go to school or church because of restrictions and lockdowns in many U.S. states.
Global leaders have accused Chinese officials of delaying the news about the virus after it escaped a lab in Wuhan.
As of Tuesday, over 775,000 people have reportedly died from coronavirus-related illnesses around the world, according to data from John’s Hopkins University.
No Covid cases at all in 10 million Wuhan population. How could that be? They must not be using the same PCR test, that is showing ‘cases’ everywhere else, thereby giving them the excuse to continue their fascist laws https://t.co/9MV5qC360h
