The way people are dying and getting sick from Covid-19 is very scary and that is why the government is trying so hard to protect people from getting infected, they are not doing it directly but people were told to maintain social distancing and follow the other regulations of the Covid-19 in order to avoid contracting the virus.
Both the unvaccinated and vaccinated groups must make sure that they work together without judging one another and fight against those virus, whether you want to get vaccinated or not make sure that you also try and follow some of the safety procedures in order to avoid contracting the virus and spreading it to people around you.
It’s not about getting vaccinated or not but just doing the right thing by not being reckless and wearing face masks at all times, just in case you around someone who has Covid-19 or you yourself have that thing. If we all behave and do the right thing by next year this time there won’t be any Covid-19 in the country, but if we keep being reckless will keep going back and forth until many people die.
