When my wife and I are walking in Montmartre, we are always wearing our masks and always social distance. These clients were sitting as close as one would under normal circumstances and the bars didn't apply social distancing protocols.

Those of you who are not pleased by my comments might consider this, it is akin to not wearing a condom especially if you aren't sure your partner has AIDS!

You may not be open-minded enough to accept that the same amount of information - some accurate and informative, some just plain scare-mongering - has been bombarded onto all those people in your shots; that people are then able to reach their own conclusions as to the risks and the wider consequences. You have reached your own opinion, others differ with you. It is nothing to do with irresponsible devil may care attitudes. Shame on you for insulting the people in your shots, people you know nothing about.

Perhaps you haven't experienced any deaths in your neighborhood,or your family because of Covid19. We lost my Girlfriends' mom and 30,000 plus in my city in a few months.

Shame on you for not having the empathy or common sense to realize just how deadly this is.

I am truly sorry for your loss. I know two people who lost their lives to the virus, although one was in her 90s and had other issues so the virus causing her death is debatable. But the other person, it was the virus. My wife and I know quite a few people who have lost family members in New York where we used to live.

I have two sons that are on their own, not living with my wife and I. Both have had the virus. The older one just got his negative test and had no real symptoms other than loss of taste and smell. Our younger one guy it twice. Yes twice. He lives in New York and got it right before they even reported the first case in the state. He couldn't get a test for four weeks. Every hospital he went to turned him down - they were saving the limited tests for the note at-risk people. He got horribly sick, fever of 104 farenheit for a week, then pneumonia. Took six weeks for him to recover. Over two months later, he got it again, most likely from one of the rioters in New York City when he was on duty. Much easier time the second time. He lost his sense of taste and smell and was very lethargic.

I don't have much faith in social distancing, we've heard conflicting reported as to what is the proper distance. I had having to wear a mask. But I observe the distancing and wear my mask for a few reasons: they most probably are effective rules to follow, even if not it can't hurt to follow them. I also want to be respectful of others who might feel uncomfortable to be around me.

99% it now if the people who contract this virus will be just fine. But it's no consolation to those who have lost friends and family to it
