College Students Allegedly Trying to Contract Coronavirus to Make Money Selling Blood Plasma

College Students Allegedly Trying to Contract Coronavirus to Make Money Selling Blood Plasma

“BYU-Idaho is deeply troubled by accounts of individuals who have intentionally exposed themselves or others to Covid-19”

File this story under insane if true. Could 2020 possibly get any crazier?

The Independent reports:

American university investigates students intentionally contracting coronavirus to sell their plasma

Brigham Young University-Idaho has warned that students could face suspension if they intentionally try to contract Covid-19 – as the university investigates claims of some pupils doing just that.

The university launched an investigation following reports of students potentially contracting the novel virus so they could sell their plasma containing Covid-19 antibodies.

“BYU-Idaho is deeply troubled by accounts of individuals who have intentionally exposed themselves or others to Covid-19, with the hope of getting the disease and being paid for plasma that contains Covid-19 antibodies,” the school wrote in a statement released on Monday.

“The university condemns this behavior and is actively seeking evidence of any such conduct among our student body.”

If the investigation confirms a student actively sought to contract the virus in order to sell their plasma, the university added, they could be suspended and potentially dismissed from BYU-Idaho.

“The contraction and spread of Covid-19 is not a light matter,” the school wrote. “We urge all members of the campus community to act respectfully and responsibly by observing all public health and university protocols and placing the well-being of others above personal benefit or convenience.”

Currently, 109 BYU-Idaho students have tested positive for the coronavirus.

Comments

Statistically the average college student faces more danger from alcohol than Wu-Flu.

Red Cross is actively soliciting donors who have recovered. It wouldn’t surprise me if Plasma Centers are advertising as well. Compared to the stuff I did to finance my education (9 bronchoscopies! @ $225 a pop) this seems pretty minor.

Hey!

Tuition is High High High.

It would be quicker and more lucrative to just sell a kidney or better still, sell both their kidneys and buy a dialysis machine to hook up to a couple of times per day! All students should take an IQ Test before being admitted to campus courses.

Other than concerns about them unintentionally spreading it to others, what business is it of theirs at all?

If you haven’t already, look up the term “pozzing.”

    Agreed. As long as the student gets any required treatment and stays quaranteened until WuFlu negative, the school shouldn’t care. And what the student does with his body, as long as nobody else is involved, is nobody’s business.
