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.

Okay, so I live in Spain and we have to wear masks in public transport and in closed spaces like the supermarket. We don't have to wear masks if we're outside, as long as we keep our distance from other people. The vast, and I mean VAST, majority of people comply and I haven't heard any radical outcry or anything in the news. Today I went to the supermarket and they won't let you in unless you wear a mask, clean your hands with alcohol at the door, and put on gloves they provide. Not one complaint from anyone. I can't understand why it's so hard for these covidiots to get it.

It blows my mind that people still don't understand what the mask does. It prevents people who have covid from spreading it, it does not prevent you from getting it. But nice to know this guy could give a shit less about the little old lady he is standing next to in the checkout counter.

In this case it's not a placebo, the masks are not about feelings or emotions. People wear real masks because of science. It's not ok to try and get around the law like this.

Lucas

Yeah but the basic premise of the mask is to protect others. It might help people not catch Covid as well but only as long as they wear the mask properly and don't touch it. The science is about the person wearing the mask coughing and preventing the results going everywhere - a surgical mask won't be great at that but is better than nothing and some of the cough will be caught - reducing viral load on any poor person near them. The main problems arise if people touch things while in a supermarket (for example) and then touch their mask, which will also get damp from their breath. Then it won't protect them.
