CBS News interviewed revelers present at a Miami beach on Monday, finding that there’s no shortage of younger Americans who are unconcerned about the potential of a Chinese coronavirus epidemic. The street interviews revealed that many young adults are moving forward with their spring break entertainment plans.
Watch the flippant beachgoers here:
“It’s really messing up my spring break. What is there to do here other than go to the bars of the beach? And they’re all closing because of it.”
You don’t think that they might be closing for a reason?
Photo and video evidence reveals that thousands of people have continued to patronize Florida’s beaches despite the federal government’s social distancing guidelines that suggest for Americans to avoid gatherings of more than ten people.
Florida itself has already incurred more than 130 cases of the coronavirus, a presence that is greater than that of some other large states.
Certainly there’s a case be be made that the economic disruption caused by the coronavirus scare is causing more damage than it’s worth. But the cavalier attitude of Miami’s beachgoers suggests that there truly are Americans who are flippantly disregarding the threat that the virus poses.
Unfortunately, should some of Miami’s spring breakers prove unfortunate to transmit the disease during their vacation, they probably won’t be the ones to pay the most serious consequences because of it. Young adults aren’t at significant risk of dying of the disease, but they could bring the virus to environments where vulnerable older Americans contract it and lose their lives.
At times criticism of the millennial generation is overblown, but the footage of careless revelers is quite an embarrassing showing for young Americans.

Rhode Island Police Targeting New Yorkers for Mandatory Coronavirus Quarantine
State police will scrutinize New Yorkers arriving in the state.
Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo signed an executive order on Thursday that establishes strict mandatory quarantine rules for those arriving in the state from nearby New York.
“Anyone coming to Rhode Island in any way from New York must be quarantined,” said the governor at a press conference. “By order. Will be enforced. Enforceable by law.”
The executive order will require New Yorkers to identify themselves to state law enforcement or National Guard personnel and place themselves into self-quarantine for 14 days upon their arrival. The Empire State is the national ground zero for the Chinese coronavirus epidemic, and Rhode Island’s government appears highly skeptical of New Yorkers fleeing from the state.
Governor Raimondo admitted that the executive order is an “an extreme measure,” but justified its implication on the basis of the coronavirus epidemic’s severity. “I don’t want anyone to panic. If anything, Rhode Islanders should breathe a sigh of relief. We are doing things to keep ourselves safe.”
National Guard personnel are being posted at the state’s major airports, and state police are stopping passenger traffic that enters from New York. Law enforcement will follow up with New York residents that enter the state to ensure that they’re complying the law.
Raimondo established real penalties for New Yorkers that violate the self-quarantine rule, subjecting them to a maximum penalty of a $500 fine or even 90 days in prison.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo expressed his disapproval of the move, claiming it unfairly singles out New Yorkers in a time when Americans should be uniting to combat the coronavirus epidemic.
“I don’t like it socially or culturally. I don’t like what it says about us as one state, one family. Also, I don’t believe it’s medically justified.
Florida, Maryland, Texas and California have enacted similar public health measures that scrutinize New Yorkers, but Rhode Island’s appears to be the most forceful to enter effect thus far.
