A woman has filmed herself at a crowded party while bragging she has coronavirus.
In the video shared on social media on Saturday (local time), the unknown girl, who is believed to be a Texas Tech student, is seen at a large gathering holding a red plastic cup as she speaks to the camera.
“Everyone is kidding like, ‘Don’t you have COVID? Don’t you literally have COVID?’” she says filming herself with a mobile phone.
“Yes I f***ing have COVID!” she says getting louder.
The woman then pans the camera around to show other people at the outdoor party, none are wearing masks and claims everyone attending has the virus.
“The whole f***ing world has COVID. All of these people have COVID,” she says.
The student then pans the camera back to herself and tells people to “stop getting on my tit”.
“Stop getting on my tit, like, I’m having a good time. Thank You,” she says as the video abruptly ends.
The video was reportedly originally shared with the woman’s friends on Snapchat and later uploaded to Twitter by Taylor Smith, who claims they don’t know the partygoer personally but she attends Texas Tech university, according to Business Insider.
It’s not known if the woman in the video does in fact have coronavirus, with some people suggesting the video was meant to be a joke shared among a small group of friends.
It has since gone viral being viewed millions of times and shared across multiple social media platforms.
The Dean of Texas Tech said they were aware of the video and were addressing the situation.
“We have received a report and are aware of a video related to COVID. The matter is being addressed by the Office of the Dean of Students and Student Conduct,” TTU Dean of Students tweeted.

The video comes as more than 600 active cases of coronavirus have been reported at the US university as of Wednesday (local time).
President Lawrence Schovanec blamed the surge in cases on “parties and other social gatherings that are taking place off campus” stating they were a violation of the university’s coronavirus protocols.
