Editorial: Safety first

A surge in mass gatherings and the lack of social distancing amid reopenings across the globe have led to the deterioration of the Covid-19.

Mass gatherings are now on a rise especially in countries like USA, and increasing numbers of people, especially the young population, tend not to keep social distances.

Study says some Americans remain highly resistant to wearing masks in public areas, thus they cannot well protect themselves and people around them. This is another important factor leading to the record-high daily increases.

US continues with the world’s highest number of Covid-19 infections and fatalities till today.

The next couple of weeks are going to be critical in our ability to address those surgings that we’re seeing across the country. If residents don’t adhere to recommended measures like masks, social distancing, and frequent hand washing, the virus may spread out of control.
