While Evo 2019 was creating new stars in the fighting game community a couple of weeks ago, there were some other disturbing things going on in the background unrelated to video games. First there were allegations of date rape drugs going around at the Red Bull Evo afterparty, now a new report tells us that there was a confirmed carrier of an old disease called Measles walking around Mandalay Bay and Luxor hotels according to the Southern Nevada Health District.
Measles is highly contagious and takes up to 21 days to show up in your system. So far there are no reported cases of anyone else catching Measles, but if you attended the event in any form in fashion, you may want to get tested just in case. I can only hope that Pax West and Twithcon are smooth because now I’m honestly worried about my safety after the Evo and E3 news. Stay safe out there folks.
