An Instagram account names and shames "Covidiots" who flaunted blocking rules during the pandemic.
@Gaysovercovid's account is crawling the gay community's Instagram posts to find and share people holding maskless parties and large gatherings as coronavirus cases continue to rise.
Contributions include a huge Christmas party in Miami that gathered at least 30 night owls who had banded together for a photo with no mask in sight.
Another was a clip from TikTok, titled "Gays at Their NYE Circuit Parties," which showed a seemingly busy club or party full of masked men dancing.
The group behind the Instagram account wrote in the headline: “The most reliable @tiktok we've seen. January is going to be such a bad month for case numbers, hospitalizations and coronavirus-related deaths.
“For those of you who stayed home, thank you. For those of you who have traveled, please quarantine and get tested. It is never too late to have compassion for others. "
