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.

No masks allowed? So you're not even going to allow people to make their OWN choice about this?

Koalamonster

There's a campground that I saw in the news when they reopened a month or so ago that said if anyone came into any of the businesses on site with a mask on they'd treat it as an armed robbery. That the only reason you'd be wearing a mask was to rob them and they'd treat you as such. I initially thought that meant calling the cops, until multiple people pointed out with the rural nature of the campground it could very easily be taken as a threat that they were going to shoot you... so... yeah. People are being crazy right now and I honestly hope it has long term consequences for their businesses.

That's just "wow". I've seen people out in public wearing masks long before covid. I don't know if they have immune issues, or they are trying to keep their germs to themselves, or if it's for some other reason. But I'd would never care if someone was wearing one.
