Around here in the US of A we have thousands of people protesting the stay at home order. They want to be able to go to the beach, go golfing, go for a haircut, etc.
What these people don't realize is people are encouraged to stay home to stop the spread. In the US of A we've now had more people die of COVID 19 than died in the entire Vietnam War. for many with underlying medical issues it's a matter of life and death.
[full disclosure: my wife has underlying medical issues and my father in law is in a rehab facility having a positive COVID 19 test.
For a number of people this shut down is a temporary inconvenience, in a month they'll be able to get a haircut and do other stuff in the coming months. On the other hand we've got thousands who have died and will never get the chance to partake in the activities these thousands of protesters are want to do.
It'S a question of priorities. My father in law is proof that COVID 19 is not a hoax.
[Addendum: our local Wal-Mart has jut been shut down for a deep cleaning after an employee died of COVID 19. Also people are traveling to states like Maine to get their haircuts only to be told they'll only serve Maine residents and that out of state people have to self quarantine for 14 days. }
