Americans flocks to beaches and lakes despite Covid-19 restrictions

Citizens in the North American country of the United States of America have flocked to beaches and lakes for Memorial Day weekend, flouting restrictions imposed to curb the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak.

In Florida, the state police have intervened to disperse an unauthorised gathering of hundreds of people in Daytona Beach.

Likewise, in Missouri, bars at the Lake of the Ozarks have witnessed a huge rush of people, who have violated social-distancing rules.

A high US official has expressed his concern about the behavior of the people.

In the coming days, a serious global discussion is expected to open up about the topic.

The relaxed attitude towards the restrictions imposed to curb the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak is a great concern.

It is high time to open up a discussion in this matter. The US government should speak up and give an convincing explanation on why such a development has happened in the country.
