Countries might be loosening lockdown restrictions, but the coronavirus hasn’t gone away. There are a total of 10.3 million confirmed cases of infected worldwide and 2.59 million of these are in the United States alone, according to Johns Hopkins University. Brazil stands in second place with over 1.37 million cases while Russia has 640k confirmed infections. Meanwhile, India has nearly 567k cases, and the United Kingdom has 313k.

A lot of people are asking the question: why is America number 1 in the world when it comes to Covid-19 infections? It’s a complicated issue with no easy answers. However, some people on the internet are posting anecdotal evidence about how "bad" some Americans are with following coronavirus guidelines. Scroll down to have a look, dear Pandas, and upvote your faves. Oh, and keep in mind that different sources provide slightly different numbers of people who have been infected with the virus.

You can see up-to-date details about the coronavirus pandemic by visiting the Johns Hopkins University Covid-19 dashboard right here. It’s a great tool to use for more in-depth understanding and wider context on this health crisis.

In the US, more than 126k people have died with or because of the coronavirus. In some states, infection cases are soaring again, and plans to ease lockdown measures have been put on hold in some areas.

For example, even though the Fourth of July celebrations are approaching, Texas and some parts of California have ordered bars to close again.

On Saturday, June 27, the US recorded over 43k new coronavirus cases. Florida alone recorded 9,585 new cases in 24 hours on Saturday, which was a new daily record for the state. Georgia, Nevada, and South Carolina also reported new daily infection records.

Just to keep you on your toes, you ought to know that scientists in China have identified a new strain of flu that has the potential to become a new pandemic.

The new flu strain is carried by pigs but, according to researchers, it can infect human beings, too. There are fears that the strain could mutate even more and easily spread from human to human.

I agree that the medical staff needs better gear and equipment to fight this pandemic and I know that I might get trashed here but I think addressing police as killers is wrong, not every cop is a killer, most of them try to keep us safe.

If you were the only person affected by your decision, sure don't wear a mask. Same for drunk drivers, if they only hurt themselves and no one else, sure drive drunk, take your chances. But in both cases, you are not the only ones affected by your poor judgement.

I saw two teen guys wearing masks in the grocery store. One looked at me and I gave him thumbs up. He asked if I knew him (I'm 59) and I said I appreciated him wearing a mask. He said that he has suffered a collapsed lung six times and his brother was born with a heart defect and has had over 20 surgeries. They had a plastic baggie and shook out a pamphlet if I wanted to take it. They are putting together a program of young people with compromised health to speak to Zoom groups and create online and TV ads.

No one should compare this mask situation to a stance on abortion. You can't say the right to abort is the same as the right not to wear a mask and if you try and make it the same people will start taking all the rights away.
