    • 2022 May 21, Sullivan, Peter, “As cases rise, Americans are ‘checked out’ on COVID-19”, in The Hill[1], archived from the original on 22 May 2022:
      COVID-19 cases are on the rise, but many Americans are over thinking of the virus as a crisis.
      Even in blue cities, restaurants are packed with people, and many Americans don’t wear masks even on the subway or on airplanes.
      Amid this national attitude, it may be extremely difficult for local or national leaders to try to reimpose any COVID-19 restrictions.
