In a last-ditch effort to slow down the spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus, countries and major cities all over the world have gone into full lockdown.
And, currently, there are 574,834 confirmed cases globally.
A further 26,368 have tragically died from 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.
Things have started to get silly.
It has been truly apocalyptic scenes – Supermarkets have been overcrowded with people frantically stocking up on soaps, sanitizers, toilet rolls, canned goods, and other non-perishable foods.
Oh, alongside thirty cans of tomatoes. Because that makes total sense…
People have been literally emptying supermarkets’ shelves of their products, forcing large companies to put regulations in place to prevent people from buying too many things.
People have had to find alternative ways of getting their hands on the essentials.
Yep, several American’s have reportedly been crossing the Mexican border in their hunt for toilet paper.
As reported by WKBN 27, more than 600 people were seen queuing outside Tijuana Costco with shopping carts.
With one shopper explaining, “It’s tough for us to come down here to get things, but we’re going to try it.”
As more and more people began flocking to the Mexican border to get their essentials.
But locals are not happy about this.
Reports have come in that the residents of the Mexican state of Sonora, which is just south of Arizona, are blocking all traffic into Mexico from the US after it closed its border checkpoint on Wednesday out of fear of infected Americans entering their country.
Speaking to the Arizona Republic, Jose Luiz Hernandez, a member of the group said, “There are no health screenings by the federal government to deal with this pandemic. That’s why we’re here in Nogales. We’ve taken this action to call on the Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to act now.”
There are only 585 current cases in Mexico, whilst there are 86,000 cases in the U.S alone… a huge difference.
The country that Donald Trump tried to close off with his wall is now wanting nothing to do with us Americans.
Who’d have seen that coming?
And we must respect that.
And the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is a prime example of that.
