Bodycam footage captured the moment a police officer encountered a student who was hosting a “COVID-19” party as everyone who attended tested positive for the virus.
The video shows an officer in Oxford, Ohio speaking to one of 20 people in a house near the University of Miami last Saturday – twice the number allowed to meet in the state under Corona Virus Restrictions.
The officer orders the group, which was not wearing masks, to disperse and asks the man, “So you might know why I want to talk to you?”
“Just, too many people?” The student answered, who revealed that eight people live in the property.
Then the officer was heard saying “I’ve never seen this before” while checking the resident’s ID card.
There is an entry on the computer that tested positive Coronavirus disease? “.
“Yes,” the student replies.
He goes on to admit that he had tested positive a week ago, and that everyone at the party also had the virus, including two people from the house across the street.
The officer replies in horror, “Oh my God. This is what we are trying to prevent.”
“We want to keep this city open.”
He then wonders why the students have not been subject to a 14-day quarantine, as recommended by state and federal health officials.
Over 1,000 University of Miami students have tested positive Corona Virus Since the classes began this class, according to the WKRC news channel.
Governor Mike DeWine said in a media briefing that the cases in Miami are the reason Butler County remains at Tier 3 in the state’s public health counseling system.
The university still plans to start classes on September 21.
However, officials have warned that students who refuse to take an exam will be denied access to campus services and will have to return to distance learning.
Oxford police cited six men who attended the ceremony, for violating the state’s assembly and quarantine law. They could face a fine of $ 500 (£ 390).
