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.

Could you guys imagine if these people had to go through WWII? As in them having to make actual sacrifices due to rationing. Sorry for the minor inconvenience of having to wear a mask while you boast about supporting troops and their sacrifices. Guess you are all the more appreciative of sacrifices when you are unwilling to make any of your own.

M O'Connell

I KNOW, RIGHT?! People who believe this sort of stuff, and that vaccines implant a tracking device need to wake up and realize that the government doesn't need to inject you with a tracking device, you paid for one yourself and make a point to carry it around with you. Likewise, application of AI to internet advertising basically is a form of mind control, their entire goal is to take advantage of your interests and curiosity to get you to buy what they want to sell. Sigh. People. If you don't wish to be tracked toss your phone, and drive a car made before 1996 (depending on make/model) and only shop with cash. Anything else means you're jacked-in to the matrix.

What a bunch of funny (but in reality sad) comments... are you people really that ignorant to believe that the masks do anything against COVID? My mind has been blown; educate yourself rather than take every word from WHO / governments without asking critical questions. The ignorance is starting to go too far.

WilvanderHeijden

You are right, The mask doesn't protect you against the virus. But it prevents you from spreading the virus. So if everyone ( including idiots like you) would be wearing masks the virus wouldn't be spreading like wildfire. The ignorance already went too far and people like you are the ones that need to start asking "critical questions" about their own stupidity.
