We Hold These Truths
These protests, which violate the social distancing, etc. guidelines are risking the lives of the protesters and other people who are contacts. I am a pediatrician and it causes me great distress to see small children at these protests with no protection like masks, no distancing being observed, being hugged by adults who also have no protection, etc. It is my professional opinion that these parents are putting their children at great risk because of their (the parents) ignorance about the coronavirus. Child Protective Services should intervene to protect these children. The relaxation of the guidelines prematurely will result in unnecessary loss of lives, and it is premature to do that at this time, for many reasons. Our government leaders at all levels need to listen to the scientists and physicians in matters related to this terrible pandemic.
