REPORT: Coachella Attendees Suffer 'Massive' Herpes Outbreak https://t.co/QanRwZXyAI— The Daily Wire (@realDailyWire) April 28, 2019
"HerpAlert," is reporting a "massive" outbreak of herpes in California, which they believe to be associated with the Coachella music festival.
Doctors received at least 250 requests for herpes medication per day during the festival. Most of the requests came from the area of the festival itself and surrounding towns where many festival-goers were staying during the event.
Coachella "is a perfect place for the herpes virus to pop up," one official said. The event typically draws around 250,000 over the course of two spring weekends, and attendees are known to hook up, but also routinely share makeup, cigarettes, and drinks.
