He further wished the nation a “joyful and blessed” Easter Sunday, while remarking on the vivid differences in celebrating this year due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The Former President’s wife, Michelle Obama, is also one of those who have used their social media platform to encourage people to take the pandemic seriously.

To control the spread of the virus, The federal government has enforced social distancing, urging Americans not to attend gatherings larger than ten people and as such, leaving churches to devise new means of holding services.

Many churches have hereafter embraced the online method as a means to reach their congregation. According to the Hill, “for the first time, every state in the country is under a major disaster declaration.”

Wisconsin, which was the final state, was approved for the declaration by President Trump on Saturday, following America surpassing Italy with the most deaths from the virus in the world.

As the country battles this outbreak, many health professionals have expressed their displeasure with people who have chosen not to practice social distancing as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

One such complaint is from a new mom and medical professor, Rachel Patzer, whose husband is an emergency department physician. Former President Barack Obama referenced Rachel in a thank you tweet to health care workers.

She had tweeted last month that she and her husband made the difficult decision for him to isolate and move into their garage apartment as he continues to treat patients.

In a CNN article, Patzer expressed how difficult it was to see people ignoring social distancing recommendations knowing her husband and his colleagues were risking their lives to treat sick patients.

She, however, urged people to take the pandemic seriously and to “please thank a health care worker for what they are doing and sacrificing.”

The Former President’s wife, Michelle Obama, is also one of those who have used their social media platform to encourage people to take the pandemic seriously.

Earlier this month, the former first lady encouraged her followers to stay at home to reduce the risk frontline health workers face daily.
