Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

This didn’t age well at all.
Soon after the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally held in South Dakota took place, a study concluded it may have caused more than 250,000 new coronavirus cases.
Looking at the video you can really see how that isn’t a distant possibility.
Those numbers are non-consensual though and a recent report published by Jennifer Dowd, deputy director of the Leverhulme Centre for Demographic Science at the University of Oxford, says the 250,000 estimate is at best an “absolute worst-case scenario number,” and the actual number of infections may have been far lower.
