So far in February 2021 the reported infection rate in the US is down to less than half what it was the day Donald Trump tried to install a dictatorship in the US. That's good. However, the death rate has skyrocketed. In the first five days of February 2021 the US has lost at least 18,000 people to COVID-19.
That's an average of about 3,600 per day. SIX 9/11's in FIVE days.
Now most people in this country don't practice social distancing. Social distancing is hard - staying six feet away from everyone. There are simply going to be times when you're outside that you're going to be closer than 6 feet to someone, like at the Supermarket for example. I get it I do.
But then again, about 40% of the country isn't wearing masks.
Thing is, NONE of that matched the guidelines of the CDC. Those guidelines are, in full:
- Wear a Mask AND
- Stay at least 6 feet away from others.AND
- Do not spend more than 15 minutes with the same person in the same enclosed space for more than 15 minutes in a 24 hour period.
