Thumbs down Novak Djokovic, how stupid can you be?

What an inconsiderate asshole.

That Novak Djokovic has become infected with COVID-19 came as little surprise after three other players tested positive. What is shocking is how naive the top men's tennis player has been, writes Andreas Sten-Ziemons.
To be clear, the news that anybody has tested positive for the coronavirus is no reason for gloating. And one can only hope that all of those who have been infected with COVID-19 in connection with Novak Djokovic's Adria Tour will suffer no ill effects and soon return to full health.

But the news of Djokovic's positive test does raise one question: How naive and stupid can you be? The men's world No. 1 in tennis invited a few of his friends to a series of tournaments in Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina at a time when events on the ATP Tour remain on a forced break. Djokovic's aim: to get in some match practice with a few fellow professionals and get back into playing shape, while at the same time collecting donations for a good cause and simply to have a bit of fun.

Perfect environment for the spread of COVID-19

And fun he had, in part because he arrogantly ignored all conventional anti-corona hygiene measures. Spectators sat close to each other in the stands and without masks. The players hugged each other, posed again without masks with groups of children for photos, signed autographs in crowds and then went out to party together in a club with hundreds of other people. There was loud singing and close dancing, with some even taking off their shirts. The result was a mixture of warm air in an enclosed space, sweat, saliva droplets, and aerosols in short, the perfect environment for the spread of COVID-19. The tennis players in Djokovic's company clearly didn't care or were simply too stupid to understand the danger they were exposing themselves to.

Or, maybe he understood the risks, and made a decision for himself?

The horror, right? I know you think people shouldn't be free to make their own choices

Imagine if everything with such a low mortality rate kept you paralyzed with fear

And his parents blamed the Ukranian player who was the first to test positive, they also said that they're used to the scrutiny from the press. You would think that Novak would be more safe since he has a very young child and now he has more to lose.

Typical response from OP is Name calling and abuse right out of the gate often in extra large bolded text to be more intimidating

I'm not dismissing the risk to children out of hand but statistically they are at VERY low rick of suffering any serious symptoms

Seems like everyone who attended and participated is equally responsible. He may have organized it but they all may their own decisions.
