Despite the global pandemic crisis that we are currently experiencing, some people just aren't listening to the "stay at home" rules.
Keep scrolling to check out the police officer who was brutally attacked when trying to advise a civilian...
This is the worst pandemic our world has seen in decades.The deadly virus has completely taken over the world and it has been spreading at an alarming rate.
World leaders have been left with no choice but to bring their countries to a total stand-still...And many have now banned large and crowded events, including any travel to and from infected countries.
It didn't take long for the virus to reach us here in the States.Our first case was confirmed in Washington in late January after a citizen returned from a trip to China.
And, since then, the numbers have been rising at a frightening pace.Since the first case in Washington, there have been 400,000 more confirmed cases across the country.
Yep, things are deadly serious...
And many people have been descending into mass hysteria over the risks the virus brings with it.

The importance of self-isolation has been stressed globally...And it has been proven that locking down public areas and avoiding social situations has helped reduce the chances of spreading the already out of control virus.
But it seems that not everyone feels the need to abide by these suggestions...Scenes last month at the Clearwater Beach in Florida showed that a lot of people have completely disregarded these global warnings.
Images from the white-sand beach showed spring breakers enjoying the sun...And even though many beaches in this area have been closed due to the pandemic, visitors still flocked anyway.
Some people just don't quite realize the extent of this situation...With 14,550 positive cases of the virus in the state of Florida, many of whom are teens or in their early twenties, the Centers for Disease Control has advised that all events with more than 50 people attending should be canceled - meaning people need to start taking this very seriously.
But despite the rapid rise in deaths and consistent warnings from health officials...
Many people continue to ignore the social distancing rules and go about their days as they please.
You used to have only one job: social distancing, to slow the spread. Now you also have a second job, and it's muc… https://t.co/6CDUxByhMu— Mark D. Levine (@Mark D. Levine)1585576111.0
Officials have made it perfectly clear that mass gatherings are not allowed to happen until further notice...And this includes religious gatherings, such as going to church on a Sunday.
Of course, this has proven to be extremely hard for many of us...But we need to accept the fact that these lockdowns have been implemented to save lives, and abusing the rules of them is a very selfish thing to do.
Authorities around the world are using different methods to control the number of people wandering around during these lockdowns.These methods range from fines to convictions, depending upon the severity of the case.
These rules are also in place in the U.K.The U.K. has been experiencing an influx of nice weather over the last few weeks which, as you can imagine, isn't ideal for the nation who are currently in lockdown.
The U.K. government has warned citizens to not be spending time outside...
Despite the temptations of the sunshine and high temperatures.
Please please please remember the @GOVUK restrictions remain in place over the weekend, don’t be tempted to take ad… https://t.co/0Yx6i5ngTe— Roads Policing Unit (RPU) - Surrey Police - UK (@Roads Policing Unit (RPU) - Surrey Police - UK)1585978624.0
But some Brits have taken it too far.After a man brutally attacked police officer as they tried explaining the lockdown rules to him.
Police were called to Rochdale, in Greater Manchester on April 9th on the account of a man causing a disturbance.When they arrived they explained the lockdown rules to him, emphasizing that under the government guideline he should not be visiting other people's homes.
Whilst attempting to talk with the man, 2 police officers where punched.Assaulted for doing their job.
One of the police officers was then badly bitten.The 21-year-old police constable had to be taken to hospital to be checked over.
Fortunately, they were discharged and sent to recover at home.But it could have easily been much worse.
The man was consequently arrested on suspicion of criminal damage, domestic violence assault, section 18 assault with intent to resist arrest and regulation 8 of the Health Protection Regulation 2020.The 29-year-old then remained in police custody for later questioning.
The incident is a stark difference to the praise the UK's emergency service has received over the past few weeks.
With the country gathering outside of their homes to clap for them once a week.
