sophia @90sSophie: “The increase is massive and no one is scared anymore making it worse”
Dr. Augustine obi @austinepawas: “Churches and mosques aren’t essentials. Why leave the things people can do without and open things people can do without. Churches and mosques should be one of the last things to open.”
