I thought that this would bring home the fact that COVID-19 is NOT “like the flu” as Trump tweeted. For a start it’s summertime and it’s still rampant with an extra 60K cases everyday in the USA and shows no sign of slowing down so the 20M + (official) cases could still be hit by the end of the year. Also already, more American citizens have died in the USA than all of the Wars since Vietnam.

Americans love to quote the 1st Amendment…”Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.Where does it say anything about NOT wearing a mask to protect other citizens?
