I could feel a two weeks lockdown coming man the hell with these businesses but open what sense does it make to be sick or dead and still can’t spend the money lockdown to low the virus down

Please control your comments and help to reduce the spread by talking to relatives and friends. Let’s all do our part to stop the spread of Covid-19.

People need to practice proper healthcare advice, lockdowns only help create more stress and pressure to an already fail healthcare system and more unnecessary/untimely deaths.
