Ohio residents are sick and tired of sitting in self-isolation and hundreds of people protested at state capitol
As expected, major US media are afraid to cover the controversial actions of Americans. At the same time, Americans, in particular, Ohio residents, are not afraid of either coronavirus or showing their civic position, and therefore hundreds of people crowded at the doors of the state capitol with demands to abolish home imprisonment and allow people to work and live.
Obviously, these decisive actions of the people were provoked by the slowness of the administration of the US president and the Ohio authorities, which did not provide their people with everything necessary for the duration of the pandemic, but only curtailed the rights and freedoms of people.
It is known that a state of emergency was introduced at the end of March and state authorities extended the lockdown until May. Initially, these measures were well received by the local population, but when the pandemic showed a significant decline in the state, Ohio residents asked a logical question why quarantine is maintained.
Everyone who went to the protest lost their jobs, and the restrictions imposed by the government still strangle business and do not allow people to earn money.
The protest was so loud that it even prevented Governor Richard Michael "Mike" DeWine from quietly holding a press conference.
The main opponent of the “reopening” of Ohio is Director of Ohio Department of Health, Dr. Amy Acton. Thanks to her and the governor, the outbreak of coronavirus was suppressed in Ohio, but now people see no more reason to stay locked up and demand the resignation of Acton.
In addition to vehement dissatisfaction with the Ohio government, residents of North Carolina and Michigan also want to regain their right to normal life. Residents of Raleigh, NC, also took to the streets with banners and put forward their demands. The authorities responded by opposing civilians with police officers instead of promises and explanations.
