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.

And yet, when people say "we should change some things about capitalism a little bit" people start calling you a communist and stop listening to you. And then this happens. People are treated as disposable.

I'm horrified and incredibly saddened by this. Essential workers are unbelievably selfless and brave. They're heroes. And they've helped us all for so little thanks and terrible pay. It's just not right.

The fact is, most essential workers are still working because they can't afford not to. Calling them heroes has a way of ignoring the fundamental problem that there are millions of people in this country who lack a safety net and are forced to expose themselves to the virus as a result.

The manager of a fast food restaurant in Colorado wouldn't shut down because with its drive-through it was allowed to operate. Other similar business shut down so employees could file for unemployment and received enhanced benefits ($300/week average, PLUS $600/week enhancement). Two employees ended up in the hospital with Covid-19. while at work, the manager's apartment was unlocked and emptied onto the street -- there were no witnesses.

What does the President have to do with it? She worked at a grocery store. The Federal government has nothing to do with what she was paid or what they provide to their employees. Some employers provide masks and hand sanitizer, some do not.

In Ontario, Canada the government is giving many frontline health care and health care support workers (cleaners, food service etc) $4/hr extra in pandemic pay and $250/month extra when they work over 100 hours in a month. And only because they want to recognize their extra effort. Many other companies (grocery stores etc) are doing the same even by their own decision. What happening in the USA is shameful.

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.
