HerpAlert has reported they saw a large number of cases in Indio, Calif., during the last month. Normally, the site diagnoses 12 cases per day, but between April 12 and April 21, during the two weekends of Coachella, they counted up to 250 herpes cases per day. That’s about 1,105 total infections in the towns surrounding the festival grounds. Coachella topped HerpAlert’s previous record set during Oscars weekend when they saw 60 cases in one day.
