“Visitors packed Clearwater Beach in Florida despite social distancing warnings from health officials over the coronavirus pandemic. “(a news heading with picture)
I hope this post is controversial. What part of social isolation do people not understand? I see it here in my city when I watch 8 city police officers walk into MacDonald’s for a coffee break followed by 4 “Q tips” (my word for older folks) while 6 city workers walked out - in mid-afternoon. I was driving home from a brief grocery shopping trip and stopped at the drive-through for an ice cream cone.
Never have we been so dependent on each other and we should rise to the occasion. Perhaps the selfishness of our young folks, and yes older folks too, will not be realized until it is too late. Who are you, walking around transmitting this virus to older people? Perhaps many of the young folks know very little of sacrifice or suffering. In San Francisco the streets are still full of people.
This trickle-down effect continues with putting all medical staff at risk. Geez! Do we need martial law? Perhaps our two countries will go the same way as Italy did - and now, Spain. I guess the "not in my backyard syndrome" continues to flourish.
Should there be consequences for irresponsibility?
