Please, people – wear a fricking mask.
If we could all just control our actions for the next few weeks, stop arguing with store employees and maintain proper distances it would make a huge difference in slowing the spread of this virus. If we could all control our actions for the next four weeks, we might actually be able to send our children safely back to school and reopen businesses were are close to losing forever.
Tens of millions of U.S. workers are out of work and tens of thousands of coronavirus cases are being reported daily, but our leaders tell the jobless they are lazy and need to return to work and the sick are in many cases left to fend for themselves.
Korea has done a better job of combatting this virus than our own country – which seems to be floundering and as helpless as a rudderless Titanic headed for the ice berg.
Hopefully someone who knows what they are doing takes the helm soon.
