A group of 15 friends have fallen ill with coronavirus after meeting up for a drink for the first time since lockdown restrictions were eased.
Erika Crisp, 40, who lives in Florida, US, fell ill after going for a drink with friends at a bar ten days ago.
So far, 10 of her friends have tested positive with four more waiting for their test results. She said she was suffering from the ‘classic’ symptoms including shortness of breath before she got her positive test result.
Erika identified where and when she caught the virus, pinning it down to Lynch’s Irish Pub in Jacksonville Beach, on June 6. She has been sick for well over a week after showing symptoms just three days after the bar visit.
According to local reports, a number of other customers who drank at the bar have also tested positive for Covid-19 with the premises being shut down again for a deep clean. (Metro)
