Coronavirus Second Surge Hits Summer

It’s Summer. We’re on the move. So is Coronavirus.

I truly can relate when people say, “ Coronavirus will not dictate nor restraint my life,” but it’s never okay that 1,000 Americans will die everyday from Coronavirus until an effective vaccine is made available.

Exceeding 20,000 COVID-19 new cases per day, America will witness a Summer it has never seen before as increasing new cases emerges in Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina and Utah.

Find a beach less traveled. Go on weekdays. Bring our own food and drinks. We don’t leave trash nor contaminate surfaces so the next person can safely enjoy Nature like we did.

Hospitals are preparing for emergency as Coronavirus hospitalizations are increasing.

Surpassing 2.5 million positive cases with over 126,000 deaths, COVID-19 Second Surge is happening right now. How bad it could get is not up to our President and Governors. It is up to all of us.

After 3 months of home quarantine, my son finally got out for outdoor fresh air and sunshine. I jokingly told him, “I thought you’re going to melt.” He just laughed.

Let’s make a hot fashion statement that says, “I care.”

Enjoy the Sun. Find our Beach. Make moments that warms our heart. We just have to wear mask and maintain social distancing. It’s the new cool and responsible trend of Summer.

    • Had to, because what we experience end of Feb , we are repeating again & I think until it hits us personally or our family members , we can fathom it’s danger. But yes, we have to go back earning a living or do short outdoor travels but safety is the key so we can avoid the stories we read. Thanks . Appreciate the the feedback.

  2. As people venture back into something closer to normality, they need to remain aware of the social and economic cost that the most vulnerable will have to pay because of their recklessness. Though we cannot stay in gopher holes until a vaccine is mass distributed, we can and should implement all we have been told on how to remain as safe as possible. It is selfish to be cavalier on this point, so I commend you for making that clear.

    • It gets frustrating to see people going back like nothing happened . That CDC guidelines meant nothing. Every health worker taking care of COVID-19 patient feels insulted & unappreciated whenever people toss aside what could save lives . I’m tired of being quiet , of being made quiet, so had to write it for all the people who didn’t make it, for everyone putting their lives at risk, for voices that will never be heard. People hasn’t seen the worst of the pandemic yet. Thanks for the feedback . It gives comfort there people out there who cares of what’s truly happening.

    In Arizona, when we do venture out, we see very few masks and a lack of attention to social distancing. It is appalling that others don’t care to protect those around them.
    I like your idea of getting out into nature in a respectful, safe way. We did that last week, finding a quiet creek and having a picnic lunch alone by the water.
    Stay safe and happy!

      Fellow Arizonan, and I fully agree. I’m disgusted by the selfishness people are demonstrating. So many people value their convenience over other people’s lives.

      • It’s been crazy since end of Feb. can’t believe my family and I still went to Disney mid Feb when it was already here. Guess we got lucky . Life goes on though and we make even more the most of everyday simple moments with family.

      • The selfishness is just as pandemic from the time of the lockdown to reopening . Where I work, we are preparing already till next Flu/winter season. We are reserving our resources both supplies and manpower because what happened in New York can easily happen to any city or state. Take care, Stay safe, God bless. Thanks .

    • Quiet , isolated beaches and nature outdoors is very possible . It’s actually safer than being inside Costco or any busy stores , clinics or restaurants. As long as we respect and follow the guidelines, we’ll should be able to prevent further spread of the virus . Lockdown didn’t stop it , it simply slowed the trajectory. Each state is now having different infection trends both for the ones that fully opened and the ones just on phase 2. It’s very unpredictable so we just need to be cautious while slowly going back to our new world. Thanks for the feedback. Stay safe and best of blessings to you and your family.

    I understand the sentiment behind, “Coronavirus will not dictate nor restrain my life,” but it’s a delusion. If I get sick, if my loved ones get sick, the virus most certainly will dictate and restrain my life. Seems like wearing a mask and being sensible is a lot less restraint than hospitalization and maybe death. I hope people heed your advice.

    • With great power and choices that comes with freedom comes great responsibility , all the more with the second surge . 60% of people refuse to wear mask except when inside public buildings and transportation. Young people will highly recover while the elderly will have high chance of death. This accounts for more and more young people ignoring the warnings. It’s a selfish world. Healthcare workers , survivors , family members who were taken by COVID-19 been pleading since this started, how many listened ? The numbers no longer scare people and that is an alarming and sad. Stay safe to you and your family.

    My husband and I, we are both 85 and live mostly in isolation. The area surrounding our house gives us total privacy and we feel lucky that we can enjoy the fresh air in this outside area. On sunny days we like to sit in the sun or go for a walk in the beautiful park area behind our property, where there are never many walkers, so that it is easy not to come too close to people.
    Stay safe and keep enjoying the sun with your family whenever that is possible!

    great post! I totally agree that we need to keep social distancing and taking other preventive measures, especially as cases rise. I also agree that this is a good chance to explore lesser seen places in our own communities
