Yesterday, the Thanksgiving Day, which is regarded as a national holiday in the United States, was celebrated amidst several challenges rocking the most powerful nation.
The Thanksgiving day, which is usually celebrated every year on the fourth Thursday of November gives people the opportunity to appreciate God for the harvest blessings and of course, for the preceding year.
This year’s celebration saw several people travel for the Thanksgiving holiday, despite several warnings from US doctors and nurses. In fact, Dr Anthony Fauci, who is the nation’s top infectious disease expert, submitted that people traveling will definitely raise the chances of a “surge superimposed on a surge.”
However, in a proclamation released by the White House press secretary’s office on Wednesday evening, President Trump, in his words, says: “I encourage all Americans to gather, in homes and places of worship, to offer a prayer of thanks to God for our many blessings.”
President Trump’s proclamation was however contrary to advice of the frontline doctors and nurses, who advised people not to gather for the Thanksgiving celebrations. Recall that the US is still in the middle of a heated electoral chaos over the outcome of the Presidential election.
One good news that comes with this year’s Thanksgiving Day is the news about vaccine development, which has definitely raised hopes around the world. As the celebration continues, citizens are enjoined to adhere to Coronavirus’s health rules.
Although the stretch of the spread of the virus that might happen over the holiday weekend cannot be ascertained until two weeks later, due to the Coronavirus’s incubation period. Ovacom Media celebrates with the United States on this Thanksgiving season and hopes that everyone stay safe wherever they are celebrating.
