A Texas medical center states a patient who was a healthier youthful male died from coronavirus after attending a "COVID" social gathering. The man, said to be in his 30s, attended a so-called "COVID party", which in some cases have been organized in order to become infected with the disease so that after one is cured of it, one doesn't have to stay at home.
