The two discarded plastic gloves on the street, being gently blown by the wind, look very post-apocalyptic.

We live in a post-apocalyptic sci-fi future. Also, now is the time for movie directors to capture footage for a future doomsday movie.

Future generations will see this and wonder how we lived today just like how we wonder how people lived during the Great Depression.

Coronavirus can only keep spreading in human hosts....we need to isolate to deny this virus more human hosts....the faster we isolate, the faster we beat this and get back to normal. DO YOUR PART AND ISOLATE!!! Don't wait to be ORDERED BY THE GOVERNMENT!!!
