Groups of people have been branded as "America's Quarantine Quitters" after more and more have been giving up on the lockdown and heading out to beaches.

The world is currently living through an incredibly turbulent time.

The global pandemic has taken our planet hostage and it is showing no signs of letting go anytime soon.

The United States is officially the worst affected country in the world.

There are currently 987,322 cases of the virus in our country, along with 55,415 deaths.

Several cities have declared states of emergencies...

And a number of different states have been forced to close their restaurants and bars in an attempt to prevent any further spread of the virus - meaning a mass loss of jobs across the country.

World leaders have been scrambling to find a solution to the outbreak for months now...

But our own President took a little bit longer to consider the pandemic as a serious threat.

Trump has remained valiantly confident in America's resilience to the virus.

In January, just after the outbreak, he was quizzed on his thoughts on the virus, in which he replied: “It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine."

And, even when the number of cases in America started to climb...

He remained calm, and repeatedly stressed that there was nothing to be too worried about.

Trump has persistently fought against the media regarding the pandemic...

And, at one point, even dubbed the virus as being a "fake news media" conspiracy.

And, as the months trickled by...

President Trump simply wouldn't budge from his stance on the virus and even went on to compare it to the common flu. This was one of his most dangerous and false statements about the virus, and caused plenty of outrage amongst both Americans and people all over the world.

Things needed to change.

And fast. As the number of cases and deaths grow here in the States, people are growing increasingly more concerned with Trump's blaze attitude regarding the pandemic.

But, thankfully, Trump seemed to have a sudden change of heart.

On March 13th, mere days after he compared the virus to the common flu, he finally declared a national emergency.

This move freed up around $50 billion in federal funding...

And promised a new screening website and more drive-by medical tests.

But regardless of the national emergency...

Many people are refusing to abide by the lockdown rules.

In several different states, people have been seen going about their days as normal...

Including staging protests and flocking to public areas to socialize.

It seems that more and more people are catching on to this blatant disregard of the lockdown rules...

And they have been branded as America's Quarantine Quitters (or the QQA for short).

People from all around the country have been going about their days as they please...

And the photos to prove it are sickening. Take this image of people queuing up in a fast-food restaurant from Coney Island in New York, for example.

People recently staged a mass gathering in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to protest the reopening of businesses...

We don't see any social distancing measures being practiced here...?

Central Park in NYC looks no different...

And people were spotted happily gathering in groups and sitting around for several hours.

Scenes at Huntington Beach, California, showed hundreds of beach-goers enjoying the sun...

This most certainly doesn't look like a country struggling massively from a global pandemic.

The hot weather has caused thousands of people to flock to the beach...

Including locals from Tybee Island, Georgia.

We understand the temptations during these nice spells of weather...

But people need to understand the importance of our health and the health of others.

Florida State has begun to slowly reopen beaches for essential exercise only...

And even though authorities have been issuing fines to those breaking these reopening rules, people continue to enjoy their time on the beach in groups as if nothing is happening.

Of course, people have been left furious over these mass gatherings...

And many have pointed out that millions of doctors and nurses are working tirelessly to have people ignore their pleas and warnings.

How are we supposed to overcome this virus if people continue to put themselves at risk?

Sadly, it seems to be a never-ending cycle here in the States.

But some people showed support for these mass gatherings...

And just like this Twitter user, many feel that being stuck at home for a month is more than enough.

Things urgently need to change if we want to combat this deadly virus...

And by staying at home, the chances of spreading the virus, even more, reduce dramatically.
