Taylor Swift-themed party in Sydney turns into Covid-19 super-spreader!

As being reported, almost 100 of the attendees tested COVID positive at the Sydney, Australia event, which was arranged by fans to mark Taylor Swift’s recent release Red (version of Taylor).

According to a Fox News report, fans who gathered at the December 10 Sydney event–On Repeat: Taylor Swift Red Party in celebration of the singer’s Red (Taylor’s Version) are reportedly being asked to “immediately get tested” and isolate for seven days after “at least 97 positive cases” have been confirmed.

According to media reports, the pop star did not attend the event.

Individuals who attended the event have been slapped with fines that were increased to USD 5,000 (from US$ 1,000) and corporate fines have increased to USD 10,000 (from US$ 5,000), according to a media report.

The New South Wales Health Ministry has also tagged the Metro Theatre in Sydney as “New Venue of Concern” after celebrations of Taylor’s album’s re-release.

“NSW Health is asking all household contacts of close contacts to get tested and self-isolate until a negative result is received by everyone in the household,” Fox News quoted NSW’s report issued in a public health alert.

The statement said, “NSW Health is urgently contacting 600 people who attended Metro Theatre at that time and checked in via the QR code and is directing them and members of their households to immediately get tested and follow public health advice.”

“NSW Health is appealing for anyone who attended but did not check in using the QR code to urgently get tested and isolate and for the community to ensure other potential attendees are aware of this advice,” the alert adds.
