(ZH) — On Monday we reported how thousands of young Americans laughed off warnings to self-isolate and partied on Florida beaches anyway for spring break—with several now testing positive for COVID-19.

The poster child for these selfish ‘covidiots’—who will statistically survive coronavirus—was a spring breaker from Ohio named Bradley Sluder, who told CBS News: If I get corona, I get corona. At the end of the day, I’m not gonna let it stop me from partying,” adding that “We’re just out here having a good time. Whatever happens, happens.”

In case you were wondering how far these spring break ‘covidiots’ traveled for their ill-advised debauchery data visualization company Tectonix used cell phone location data collected by company X-Mode to map out the travels of thousands of spring breakers, using special geo-spatial big-data analysis software.

The data—provided by cell phone companies in near real-time—was anonymized.
