COVID outbreak after birthday party for cat 2/3/2021

Samantha Lock for Newsweek:

A birthday party thrown for a cat has sparked a COVID outbreak after the guests all contracted the deadly virus.

At least 15 people became infected after the celebration in the small coastal town of Santo Domingo, Chile. […]

The health official confirmed that the cat’s owner was found to be Patient Zero.

Eventually, I’m going to stop asking, “Are people really this stupid?” But not today.
