July 4 proves that many Americans don̵
7;t care that coronavirus cases are increasing again, which is in line with the new White House news … just live with it.
A handful of water-based venues – including a water park and two lake outbreaks – spawned crowds of people this holiday weekend in Wisconsin, Missouri, and Michigan … everyone sees their own fluctuations in confirmed COVID-19 diagnoses.
However, this wasn’t important to these people – they were ready to get wet and wild for Independence Day, and you can see how little they care about safety precautions.
At Noahs Ark Waterpark in Wisconsin Dells, WI, hardly anyone was a meter apart when they grabbed the wave pool. And, of course, masks were out the window – studies say they are ineffective when they get wet, so it’s a lost cause right here.
Elsewhere in Missouri … the same bar next to Lake of the Ozarks – Backwater Jack’s – pushed their planned blowout on July 4th, which they called No Ducks Given. Between Friday and Saturday the place resembled a sardine can.
And in Michigan, another lake shindig was in full swing on Saturday … Diamond Lake in Cass County was filled to the brim on its banks, and partiers raged all day.
We have seen this behavior throughout spring and early summer – since America was put on alert and states went on full locks. While the shelter-in-place orders seemed to flatten the curve, there was an explosion of new cases after the reopening.
And yet … the bad and dangerous behavior continues, despite the statements of the CDC and other health authorities. The question … what’s next? Puppy, President TrumpAccording to a new report, the administration seems to have an answer. It’s just … live life at your own risk. The thing is … he put people – his own supporters – at risk hold ruthless rallies without social distance and few masks.
NBC News reports that big wigs are appearing in Trump’s cabinet for the new message to the American people … that the virus is here and we still have to go forward.
Ironically, it seems that much of the country is already doing so, the consequences are damned. So … keep going? 😬
