Parks, beaches crowded despite social-distancing warnings

The American Public is getting ready to speak up

Americans flocked to beaches and parks over the weekend, against the advice of public health experts concerned about the spreading of the coronavirus.

Dr. Deborah Birx, response coordinator for the White House coronavirus task force, said on Fox News Sunday that it was not safe to go to beaches unless everyone was respecting the social-distancing standard of staying at least six feet apart.

She also said it was a bad idea for some states to be allowing businesses such as spas and beauty salons to reopen in the first phase of efforts to resume normal economic activity, adding that it was “devastatingly worrisome” that Michigan lockdown protesters gathering in crowds could spread the virus.

The total number of confirmed U.S. coronavirus cases reached nearly 1.2 million, with nearly 70,000 deaths.
