Apple has removed from its online store an app that encouraged clandestine parties in the middle of the pandemic.
Since the spread of COVID-19 began to manifest itself more strongly, many nations have decided to push for confinement to avoid human contact. Of course, this decision has meant that everything is totally different and that we have to get used to a new normal.
World-class events, concerts, matches and many more have had to be cancelled and postponed to prevent massive contagion. However, even though the prevention measures against coronavirus are clear, it appears that there are people who continue to take the pandemic lightly, organizing clandestine parties.
Such is the case of the Vybe Together app, which displays a series of events, with the date and time that users can apply to join and, if approved by the organization, receive the address a couple of hours before it starts.
According to The Verge, this app was removed by Apple and even banned from its TikTok account and its own website.
In the FAQ section, app managers recognized the risk of the pandemic, but ensured that the app was actually designed to promote small encounters and not big parties.
However, Apple decided to remove this platform for sanitary reasons. Social estating measures and the use of masks are common rule in much of the world as a measure of prevention of COVID-19 contagions.
Not leaving home is one of the main recommendations to avoid being infected, but Vybe Together sought the opposite.
