A video of a packed house party in Chicago over the weekend quickly went viral and drew the attention of officials.

Chicago, IL – Video has surfaced of a huge party that allegedly happened in a Chicago home last weekend despite the coronavirus pandemic restrictions (video below).

The video was posted to Facebook Live on Saturday night and showed hundreds of people packed inside of a home, including all the way up the staircase to where person filming stayed, WBBM reported.

In the video, very few of the attendees were wearing face masks, and most were pressed up one another in the packed space.

“You can’t even move in this s--t” a person at the party exclaimed in the video.

The video quickly went viral and Chicago police acknowledged it in a series of tweets, although they didn’t have enough information to pursue it.

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker mentioned the video of the party during his daily coronavirus briefing on Sunday, CBS News reported.

“I want to remind everyone that by doing that - by standing together, not social distancing, many people not wearing masks - you're literally putting everyone around you in danger - you are,” Pritzker said. “They are putting you in danger. And more importantly, all of those people are putting their families and friends who are not there with them in danger.”

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot called the party featured in the viral video “reckless and utterly unacceptable,” CBS News reported.

"While most Chicagoans are doing their part to prevent the spread of COVID-19, reckless actions like these threaten our public health and risk erasing the progress we have made," Lightfoot tweeted. "We will hold those responsible accountable."

But the mayor has been the hot seat herself lately for her own violation of the city’s stay-at-home order to get a haircut.

As of April 27, 18,679 residents of Chicago had tested positive for coronavirus and 773 have died, according to the city of Chicago's coronavirus website.

Can’t understand why virus is affecting inner city dwellers disproportionately. Just like the video of the barbecue in the housing project last week.

Shouldn't mayor Lightfoot send in the police to break up such parties? That's how they do it in Idaho, at playgrounds, where the infection rate is a fraction of that of Chicago, LOL.

What a great party. All in one place, COVID, gangstas, weed, intelligent conversation, claustrophobia. It's like parties with a few friends by the pool or lake. I guess it's the mayor's base.

It's interesting that on the Liberal websites, a lot of people are blaming the Trump supporters who want to open the economy for the spread. They are clueless. The virus is everywhere already. The infection map looks exactly like the population map.

Anyway, thank goodness these nice folks are in the basement of a house and not in an apartment. Otherwise, the people below might not appreciate it so much...

And the black community are being discriminated against - getting CV and not being treated for it.......Really??? Your own actions don't contribute to it. Maybe you'll do each other in because of it..that or shooting, beatings, pick one.

I believe this is the norm in the inner city. This would explain why corona is attacking black population at a higher level.

Alcohol and drugs probably Killed all the bugs. Didn't see a single white person in the mob.
They can't even obey health Rules let alone Gun and Crime rules. No wonder Chicago is such a mess.
Cops couldn't do anything as they would be called Racists! No Win Situation for legal stuff!

I see two possible happenings here. The most likely happening is non-cops who post here to hurt cops but use a name that makes others they are cops, say things like what is here today. The least likely, some of you who post as a cop and are a cop, should not be. Reals cops, even if they don't like individual races, religions, sex choice, and other things, are not stupid enough to post their personal feelings, which they have a right to have in our country. Acting on such beliefs is where they cross the line and act like the hateful criminals who kill, injure, and attack cops, for their color, BLUE, and are no different in their essential humanity core.
If you a cop, you are assisting the anti-cop politicians with their propaganda and new laws against you every day. Quit contributing to this wave of actions that are changing America.
If you are not a cop, just someone who is hiding like a coward behind their sister's skirt, I won't waste time with you as your brain is already insane, probably your parent's fault, or a defect at birth. Luckily for you, your parents are not like you, or you may have been aborted.
