30-Day Writing Challenge — Entry Day 18
COVID-19 has killed more than 4,800,000 people worldwide, and the death toll is still rising unnecessarily for a few reasons.
During the Canadian second wave, my neighbourhood had the highest death rate in Quebec, and it was easy to figure out why.
The second wave hit around the same time as some of the Jewish holidays. While many Jews followed the new laws imposed because of Covid, many did not.
They ignored the laws and gathered with family and friends to celebrate the holidays, didn’t keep six feet from others, and some didn’t wear masks.
I wear my mask to walk the 20 paces to the building trash chute to get rid of my garbage and back.
The gas station across the street from my building only allowed five (5) people in at a time. Apparently, people in my neighbourhood can’t count to five.
The epitome of entitlement.
