Grim Reaper walks around Florida beach
Daniel Uhlfelder, a lawyer and campaigner for public beach access surprised not only the Floridians, but also whole world with his unusual way to protest beach reopening. He put on a cowl and wielded a scythe in an attempt to alert Floridians to the dangers of reopening their economy too soon, the Guardian reports.

Florida’s governor, Ron DeSantis, announced on Friday that state parks will soon reopen, even as the coronavirus pandemic continued and Death himself stalked the beaches of the
Sunshine state.

“We aren’t at the point now where we have enough testing, enough data, enough preparation for what’s going to be coming to our state from all over the world from this pandemic” - Daniel Uhlfelder told CNN in an interview given right in the beach. ““I know how beautiful and attractive our beaches are. But if we don’t take measures to control things, this virus is going to get really, really out of control.”



Whole world, including the US and even Georgia ask themselves a question: how and how quickly to reopen their shuttered economies. This issue is becoming more and more challenging as the lockdown goes on and the coronavirus is not going anywhere anytime soon.

The Georgian government introduced a 6 stage reopening plan late las month, with entertaining, sports-recreational, creative activities, gambling, hotels, educational institutions and all other activities will be opened (in non-remote mode) opening at the last, the sixth stage.

But, it is still not clear if events unfold according to the plan as questions about the coronavirus remain and the government officials have stated that some of the already lifted restrictions may return if it is necessary.
