China has done a number on the world because they refused to alert other nations about the COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan sooner. This pandemic is 100% on them.

Because the globe is fearful of further spread, people are being fined for ridiculous reasons (like fishing, driving, playing basketball, going to church, even sitting in their cars).

SPRINGFIELD – The state’s top cop said Thursday the Illinois State Police won’t be storming places of worship on Easter Sunday, opting for education over arrests.

Illinoisans found in violation of the order could face reckless conduct or other charges. Some local governments are also looking at leveling civil penalties on top criminal penalties. Some critics of the order have said it is unconstitutional to keep people from congregating.
