  1. What is wrong with these people? Do they not understand the severity and health implications of the current crisis? Or is it, rather, they don’t care because they are young and invulnerable?
    One would assume that, as they are students, they would have reached a level of intelligence and maturity
    to better understand the situation. Clearly, common sense is not amongst their achievements thus far in life.
    Shame on you all.
