In a last-ditch effort to slow down the spread of the virus, countries and major cities all over the world have gone into full lockdown.

The pandemic has been spreading at an alarming rate...

And now, over 1 million people globally have been infected with the virus and a further 96,791 people have tragically died.

Self-isolation has now been deemed as the most effective way of combating the virus.

While medical researchers work tirelessly to find a vaccine, regular people have been urged to avoid any form of social interaction and contact as best they can.

Due to how easily the virus is spread, remaining isolated is the safest option for many...

And millions are now quarantining themselves at home for months at a time.

Many have been forced to temporarily leave their jobs amid the health crisis...

And have no option but to sit in their homes and think of ways to stay entertained.

Most of us are finding self-isolation rather boring...

It turns out that all the Netflix in the world isn't even enough to keep us entertained for 2 weeks.

And many are struggling with being cooped up in the house for so long...

Dogs, we finally feel your pain.

But many governments around the world are encouraging us to take this extremely seriously.

As boring as it is staying indoors, it is potentially saving hundreds of thousands of lives by doing so.

There have been many rumors surrounding the number of people dying from the virus...

And many have been saying that you can only die from the virus if you are either elderly or you suffer from underlying health conditions.

It is, of course, undeniable that vulnerable people are at the highest risk...

But this shouldn't be seen as a blessing by younger people, who are still able to contract the virus, pass it on, and also suffer from complications.

However, Bill O'Reilly has made some rather controversial comments recently about the victims of the virus.

Bill O'Reilly is best known for his previous position as being a host for FOX News, but a lot of controversy surrounds the former news anchor after a series of sexual assault lawsuits were filed against him over the last few years.

He was also accused by his own daughter of being domestically violent towards his wife...

All of which he denied, of course.

O'Reilly is yet to be found guilty and he continues to be an active political figure...

And his controversial comments came during a conversation with FOX News’s Sean Hannity on Wednesday as the number of U.S. deaths from the disease neared 15,000.

The pair were discussing social distancing...

"I don’t want to sound callous about that," said O’Reilly. "The [U.S death] projections that you just mentioned are down to 60,000, I don’t think it will be that high—13,000 dead now in the USA."

"Many people who are dying, both here and around the world, were on their last legs anyway," the former news anchor said.

Sean Hannity cautioned, "You’re going to get hammered for that," to which he replied that he did not care. "You mean people that have underlying conditions and that have compromised immune systems."

Understandably, people aren't happy with his comments...

And many have been taking to Twitter to remind the world of what O'Reilly is really capable of.

He has been labeled as a "disgrace"...

And many have found his comments to be insensitive and offensive.

O'Reilly needs to face the consequences of his actions...

And not only of his words but also of the vile crimes that he has committed over the years.

He is yet to comment on the backlash.
