But believe it or not, we still are.
Which is exactly what should be happening, of course.
And even though numbers of infections are steadily dropping in many countries, our country continues to be the worst affected.
It just doesn’t seem to be phasing people anymore.
Such as coughing, sneezing, and touching things with your bare hands.
Because even though they can’t protect a person fully from catching or spreading the virus, they lower that chance significantly.
And New York City is one of those places.
The number of coronavirus cases continues to steadily rise, with many parts of the country even tightening lockdown restrictions yet again.
And more and more lives are being put at risk because of this.
And that’s not just here in America… it’s happening all around the world where infection rates continue to climb.
As a young mum died of the virus just after giving birth.
Larissa Blanco, 24, had been showing flu-like symptoms for some days.
The Sun reports that on June 26th Larissa was taken into hospital as her condition worsened.
She was then transferred to the private in hospital in Botucatu the following day.
A time that should have been so special and happy for the family.
“[Larissa] saw that wonderful little face and I was really emotional, that was her dream.”
Diego thought that everything was okay until he was told that his partner had suffered a hemorrhage and needed to have a blood transfusion.
“After that, she suffered a cardiac arrest and needed a blood transfusion. At around 6 am they told me that she did not pull through and had died.”
He also added, “I am distraught, I can’t get her out of my head but I know God has a plan for our lives.”
A truly heartbreaking situation for any family.
Diego had previously tested positive for the virus but has since been given the all-clear.
