Self-quarantine? What’s that?

As the Coronavirus continues to spread in terrifying fashion across various regions of America, some people still aren’t taking it seriously. That includes former UFC heavyweight fighter Brendan Schaub, who has used his podcast and social media platform to downplay the dangers of the virus.

Even contracting the disease himself and passing it on to his family hasn’t changed his opinion.

“I went about living my life. I got it, and you know what? I’m fine!” he said after doing a comedy tour of Texas, one of the current hotspots for COVID-19.

As if that wasn’t eye-roll inducing enough, Schaub shared photos on social media of bike rides he went on after beginning to feel better. The government of California has asked that people who test positive for Coronavirus self-quarantine.

Schaub has since deleted the posts that show him out and about following his positive test results, but of course the Internet never forgets:

Schaub’s continued insistence that the virus is no big deal comes at a time where states like Arizona, Texas and Florida sit right on the edge where hospital beds, drugs for treatment and PPE for healthcare providers run low. While many who catch the virus do indeed recover soon enough without serious health consequences, it seems pretty selfish to ignore the reality that this virus does indeed kill many and seriously damage the bodies of many more.
