We’ve all heard the stories and know people who absolutely refuse to wear masks to ward of COVID-19. It’s strange to us that so many people fight against simply wearing one for a few short minutes as you enter businesses to protect not only your own life but the lives of others. But sadly, that is our reality today. But the truth is this virus is kind of like a secret killer. You can’t see it, touch it, smell it, and for many people – you can’t even feel it because they have no symptoms. But one thing is for sure; this virus is not a hoax! It is very real, and famous rapper and actor Ice-T is urging fans to take the Coronavirus seriously as he shares how his own family was affected by it. Maybe this will help others realize the importance of wearing masks.
This is what Ice-T shared on his Instagram account – “My father-in-law, Coco’s Dad, was a ‘serious no-masker’ until COVID hit him. Pneumonia in both lungs..40 days in ICU close to death. Now he’s on Oxygen indefinitely. Ohh he’s a believer now…#Covidisnotagame
We’re very thankful that Coco’s Dad was able to recover from COVID, but what people need to understand is that no one knows the full effects of this virus yet. There are many healthy people that get it and after they recover they have heart problems, or can’t walk up a flight of stairs without being out of breath. Just as Ice-T’s father-in-law is going to be on Oxygen indefinitely. Indefinitely, ya’ll!! This thing is no joke. Luckily they have the money to be able to take care of Coco’s Dad but what about families that are living paycheck to paycheck? Having long-term health problems from COVID-19 can have a significant impact on your finances and most importantly, your marriage.
Can someone please tell us why NOT wearing a mask for 3 minutes while you’re outside is worth you having long-term health problems, or better yet – dying? I mean, really? Thanks to Ice-T and everyone who tries to help our population do the right thing. If we all would work together, follow the social distancing guidelines, and wear our masks, we could possibly get rid of the virus in a few short months.
So, to all you serious no-maskers, we say this – Mask it! Or Casket!
