Since December 2019, global headlines have been adorned by continuously terrifying news about the spread of the notorious virus.
And now it’s believed around 560,000 have died from covid.

At the time of writing, there have been 33,000,000 confirmed cases.

In a bid to combat the spread of the virus, various world leaders have imposed lockdowns upon their countries.

So many people aren’t taking the virus seriously – after over a year of it dominating our headlines.

A judge in Jacksonville also ordered the woman, Debra Hunter to pay a $500 fine, serve six months probation and participate in a mental health evaluation along with anger management, David Chapman, communications director for the state attorney’s office in Jacksonville, said in an email.

She was also ordered to cover the costs of the victim’s COVID-19 test.
