Coronavirus is everywhere now and unfortunately gaining traction. I am here in the U.S. and last night was the first confirmed death of someone who had coronavirus here in the U.S. At the same time yesterday, a 3rd case was reported here in Chicago. Stories like this are growing all throughout the World now. We need to contain this virus and not spread it further, asap!

Yesterday there were runners competing for the Olympics. I honestly couldn't believe the Olympics were not canceled as of yet. In less than 5 months we have the largest public gathering still planned, This should have been canceled already, All people from all Countries traveling to the same exact City at the same time that a highly contagious virus is gaining traction. It doesn't make any sense.

Olympics start on July 24, 2020 in Tokyo Japan. Many people will be there weeks early so late June which is only 4 months away.

Please sign the petition to alert our leaders to keep us safe.

Please do not speed up the transmission of this coronavirus.
