This virus spreads by human contact. Ten million people on planet earth have now been infected since this pandemic was declared on 11 March. Avoid human contact and you stop the spread of the virus. How hard can that be? Apparently, for many people this is impossible. Some live in poor communities, huddled together and have no choice, but there are many who do have a choice and choose to act irresponsibly.

Despite having over 600,000 cases of coronavirus. This week to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII, Russia went ahead with a World War Two victory parade None of the 13,000 military in the parade wore masks. Russia has the third highest case load of COVID-19 after the US and Brazil with about 7,000 new cases diagnosed daily.

In another massive breach of social distancing, in the UK thousands of people headed for the beach during a recent heatwave.

I’m not sure what it will take for some people to realise this pandemic is serious. There are those in denial, those who don’t believe it’s real, and those who downplay it, saying it’s just a cold. There are others who will not be told what to do because they have the right to their ‘freedom’ and there are others who just don’t care and will not change their behaviour even though they may die. I wonder how these people will feel if they infected a family member who got sick and then died?  

I just don’t understand how people can be so idiotic, or maybe they are just plain selfish? Whatever the reason, people really need to wake up. This virus is real, it’s dangerous, and it’s not going away anytime soon. The only way to manage it, is to behave responsibly, but sadly it seems that some people just don’t know how to do that. They do know how to rush out and buy toilet paper, which is again flying off supermarket shelves. Many humans are sillier than sheep. Another 49 cases were recorded overnight in Victoria. Many of these cases are from community transmission with an unknown source and are under investigation.
