As college students begin their fall semester, all 50 states have now reported positive cases of Covid-19 at colleges and universities. 

This represents more than 37,000 cases of Covid-19 among students and staff at colleges and universities across the country. 

其中,南卡罗来纳州大学已报告1000多例确诊病例,感染者基本都是学生。

“数百名南卡罗来纳州大学生在大型泳池派对上被驱散”

当地消防部门称,在接到周边居民举报后,他们前往泳池派对现场驱散人群。当时派对现场都是狂欢者,泳池里挤满了人,甚至还有人爬上了房顶……

The Columbia Fire Department said it broke up the massive bash after receiving calls from concerned neighbors, The State reported.

The pool at The Apartments at Palmetto Compress was packed with revelers, who also crowded the side of the swimming area and even stood on top of the pool house, Fire Chief Aubrey Jenkins said.

现场没有人戴口罩或者保持社交距离,人们都在畅饮狂欢,消防队长詹金斯表示,在驱散人群时,甚至还有人向他表示,自己对新冠病毒免疫!

No one was practicing social distancing or wearing a mask, Jenkins said, “but there was lots of drinking going on.”

When officials ordered the party-goers to scram, the chief said, he was shocked that one person told him, “I can’t catch COVID. I’m immune to the stuff.”

詹金斯表示,哪怕是没有疫情,当时泳池里的人数也太多了。目前,他已经建议出于安全起见,继续关闭泳池。

Even without the raging pandemic, “there still would have been too many people in the pool,” Jenkins said.

Jenkins said he would recommend keeping the pool shut for the foreseeable future as a safety precaution during the virus outbreak.

而南卡罗来纳州大学方面表示,感谢相关部门喊停了泳池派对,并称已经采取许多措施引导学生做好防护。“那里仅仅是有个泳池罢了,你也没有必要非得去里面游泳。”

USC said it was glad that authorities had busted the pool party.

“We’ve done a lot of outreach to try and get the students to do the right thing,” spokesman Jeff Stensland said. “Just because a pool is there, you don’t have to swim in it.”

校方还表示,他们还与校外公寓的管理团队就安全公共卫生标准的问题沟通了几个月,然而,一些公寓并未采取必要措施,阻止新冠病毒在学生租户之中传播。

The University of South Carolina has "engaged with management teams at private off-campus apartment complexes for months to educate them on safe public health standards," a university spokesperson told Fox News.

"Unfortunately, some have not yet taken the necessary steps to slow the spread of coronavirus amongst their tenants," the spokesperson said in a statement. 

当地市长史蒂夫·本杰明 (Steve Benjamin) 在接受电视采访时表示,自己在获知这一消息后相当愤怒。他表示,该市有着明确的防疫规定,要求大家保持距离、戴好口罩。

“I was furious,” Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin said during an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” of getting a call about the pool party from Columbia Fire Chief Aubrey Jenkins. “Our rules are very clear. ... We can enforce the governor’s executive order on spacing and we also have a mask ordinance.”
