Just like that, social distancing is over

by DCG

Back in March our country and economy was shut down due to China’s Wuhan virus. We were told to stay at home – unless you were deemed essential – and practice social distancing in order to save lives.

Because of this, unemployment rose dramatically as did crime and suicides. Millions of people isolated and unemployed. And stressed.

Then the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis occurred. Stay at home orders were completely ignored throughout the country as people took to the streets to protest and riot.

Just like that, social distancing was done. After everything that was sacrificed by students, families and business owners to try to limit the spread of the Wuhan virus, social distancing is over.

Makes you wonder if the reaction to the Wuhan virus was really worth all of our efforts and economic sacrifices.
