A Texas college said they are investigating after a video surfaced showing a woman claiming she’s at a house party and has COVID-19.
Texas Tech University’s Dean of Students tweeted Sunday that they’re aware of the video and that officials are addressing the issue.
At the beginning of the video, the woman says partygoers keep asking whether she has coronavirus.
“Yes, I f**king have COVID. The whole f**king world has COVID,” she remarks.

The woman then turns the camera to show a group of people partying and drinking without masks.
“All of these people have COVID,” she then says. “I’m having a good time, bye.”
The video in question was originally posted to Snapchat. The footage was ultimately shared on Twitter, where it garnered more than 900,000 views.
The woman has not yet been publicly identified. It is unclear whether the woman really had coronavirus, or if she is a student at Texas Tech.
Texas Tech president Lawrence Schovanec said in a statement Wednesday that they have seen a “notable increase” in coronavirus cases among the student body. He attributed most of the new cases to off-campus partying and social gatherings.
