On August 15, in the Maya Beach Water Park in Wuhan, thousands of Chinese gathered to celebrate. Footage from this party then went around the web and around the world, arousing anger since we know that the COVID-19 epidemic originated in this city, before contaminating the rest of the planet.
Partiers can be seen in the footage gathered in the water, dancing side by side, without wearing masks nor social distancing. Although the outbreak in Wuhan has been under control for some time, the footage is still a cause for great concern when you consider that 773,152 people have died worldwide from the coronavirus.
Indignation on social networks
To say people have been reacting in a less than positive way on Twitter would be a bit of an understatement:
Since the beginning of the epidemic, there have been 84,871 cases of the coronavirus in China and 4,634 deaths. To date, there have been 21,826,342 confirmed cases worldwide. In the UK, 41,381 people have died as a result of a COVID-19 infection. The epidemic seems to have started up again recently, which is why it is necessary to remain vigilant, wear a mask, and continue social distancing.
