Easter 2020 is on its way, on the twelfth of April. Most of the world, however, is still suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic and consequently under a lockdown. Read on to know more about how the world will celebrate Easter in the middle of this pandemic.
Troubles in Celebrating Easter 2020
Donald Trump stated that he wanted the economy to be up by Easter 2020. Moreover, he wants the lives of the people back to ‘normal.’ Health experts have a different opinion, however. The meeting of people in crowds in merely two weeks from now can wreak havoc.
Moreover, Trump said that people need to get back to work much sooner than they thought.
“We lose thousands and thousands of people to the flu. We don’t turn the country off,” he said, adding: “We lose much more than that to automobile accidents.” (Trump’s statement, source:CNN)
