My children recently caught a cold from school, which took me by surprise.
Given the current precautionary measures across the country, I would have thought that schools were more stringent in assessing students’ health and discouraging those with flu symptoms to stay at home.
Instead my children said some of their schoolmates were blatantly coughing and sneezing while teachers did nothing to stop them from infecting other children.
The revelation was alarming.
The easing of restrictions has seemingly given some people a false sense of security, that we’ve got the outbreak under control. Now that they believe the COVID-19 crisis is behind us, they actively ignore guidelines set by the authorities.
