Coronavirus outbreak: Miami spring breakers vow to keep partying amid pandemic

Thousands of partying American university students who made their annual journey to Florida for spring break are having their celebrations interrupted as extraordinary measures to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus -- but that's not stopping some of them. In Miami, where bars, restaurants and nightclubs will close from 11 p.m. local time on Tuesday night, partying spring-breakers in the city's South Beach neighbourhood vowed to keep the party going. "If I get corona, I get corona," said Brady Sluder, a spring-breaker from Ohio. "At the end of the day, I'm not going to let it stop me from partying," he added. Miami's famed beaches will also be impacted by anti-coronavirus measures with a large section of South Beach now empty after it was closed off to visitors to prevent infections.
