Template:Expand German Original short description: "A gathering held because of the covid-19 outbreak"
A coronavirus party is a gathering, ostensibly to catch covid-19, but sometimes just held on the basis that the participants are not worried about the consequences either personally or to the community. At least one participant at such a party in Kentucky has tested positive for the virus.
Other events, such as coronavairus themed gatherings, have also been condemned as unwise.
