The George Floyd protests are going brutal day by day. The demonstrators are neither following the orders by the government nor are they following the instructions of the police. All they are doing is damage and loot.
Apart from this problem, another problem came into light. A man who was involved in the protests and was arrested for allegedly attacking the police has tested positive for the coronavirus.
According to the officials, the man has been identified as Julio Torres, age- 22 years and is a resident of East Lampeter Township.
He was arrested on Monday night for allegedly throwing objects at police officers at George Floyd’s protest along with 250 other people and he recently admitted the fact that he has been contracted with the COVID-19 or coronavirus.
He even tried to run away from the police officers, kicked a few of them, banged their heads, headbutted many, and do whatever he could to escape.
The Lancaster country President Judge, David Ashworth said in a statement,
“During the arraignment, it was discovered that Torres tested positive, was told to self-quarantine and chose to attend or participate in the protest without proper social distancing, without a proper facemask and has placed other people at risk- both the public who were peacefully participating in the protest and law enforcement. I am very concerned that the public and law enforcement has been placed at risk”.
According to David Ashworth, Torres told about his contact with the virus to the district Judge and the police officers. Well, it is not yet confirmed by the officials if he’s actually been affected by the virus.
And it is not even sure, that if he is saying the truth then how many people at the protest and police officials have got the virus from him.
