Covid: Man arrested after infecting 22 people in Majorca (BBC)

A man has been arrested in Spain on suspicion of assault after allegedly infecting 22 people with Covid.

The 40-year-old is alleged to have continued to go to work and the gym despite having a cough and a temperature of more than 40C (104F).

He is said to have walked around his place of work in Majorca, pulling his mask down, coughing and telling colleagues he was going to infect them.

Five colleagues and three fellow gym goers later tested positive.

Another 14 people - family members of the infected - also came down with Covid, including three one-year-olds.

1. A 104 Fever Wasn't Enough...

...to convince him this was serious?
How many people get fevers that high & think nothing of it? I'd think one would feel like they were on fire.
Yet, he willfully spread a germ that made him that sick.
An idiot & an ass.

He was determined to hurt people.

11. Agreed!

Probably a herd immunity, without vax, idiot.
"I've got a 104 fever, and I'm not dead!"
Glad he was arrested.

2. Give him two weeks in the cooler.

I know several people who likely infected others while flying home from FL while sick, or going to work with a fever. Really? You didn't think it was COVID? What about that photo I saw of you at the bar talking to someone with no mask and a foot from their face?

3. He needs more time than 2 weeks.

He reportedly would take his mask down and cough at people, and tell them he will infect them with covid.

9. Damn! 😵

We have friends living on that big island in Palma; they were neighbors in Cambridge in '90 & threw great dinner parties. Hope they're alright.

12. Despite the mass tourism, Mallorca is a beautiful island

Lots of northern Europeans have moved and/or retired there. Most of the Mallorquins are pretty laid back. I wonder if this nut case was native born, or a transplant from somewhere else?
