The milestone no one wanted has come. As Christians celebrate Good Friday like never before the worldwide Coronavirus death toll has hit 100,000.
This Virus started out as a meme-able joke causing the rest of the world to mock the Chinese for their apparent lack of hygiene when it comes to eating uncommon foods. Now, three months later the entire world is engulfed in one of the fastest spreading viruses of the 21st century. Health officials and police are recommending and enforcing strict social distancing guidelines, lockdown and various other mitigation methods have been implemented to try and slow the spread while maintaining a relatively low death toll.
Just last week the White House came out with some very sobering models, these models predicted over 100,000 - 200,000 deaths even if mitigation is done "almost perfectly."
Even with the strict national lockdown measures that many European countries have enforced, England's toll still seems to be on the rise.
Billions of people are bracing for their country's economy to collapse taking their financial stability with it. With citizens feeling the strain of freedoms being slowly stripped away we all are asking ourselves, "how much longer?".
