For the past few months our entire world has been fighting the coronavirus. Even though the virus is still present in our lives, it doesn’t feel that way. With the Black Lives Matter protests going on, the news hasn’t covered the increase of cases.
In my county, the cases have increased and so has the death toll. The coronavirus is still lingering in the back of my mind even if the news choses to focus on something else.
Wearing a mask has become the new normal for our society. Even though it has put a damper on my summer, it is essential to keeping me and others safe. It hurts to see people walk around with no mask. While watching the protests I was worried that people were spreading the virus. Not many people had mask on and there was no social distancing. I hope that the cases don’t increase.
Covid-19 is not a hoax. We can’t live our lives as if it doesn’t exist. I just wonder how long this is going to last. Opening the economy should be done in a safe and effective way. It shouldn’t be done just to make money.
We have to make sure that our people are safe.
