People from different states in the US have started opposing the lockdown order to curb the spread of coronavirus.
Protests have sparked across multiple states such as Michigan, Ohio, Minnesota, Kentucky, Utah and North Carolina, reports CNN.
The Governor of Michigan Gretchen Whitmer said, "The sad part is, though, that the more they're out and about, the more likely they are to spread Covid-19 and the more likely we're going to have to take this posture for a longer period of time," as a group of protesters crowded state's streets by staying in their cars.
In Minnesota, one protester mentioned people are suffering from financial setbacks and depression, "The Governor has said that we can't lose our democracy during this pandemic, and this extends to people exercising their First Amendment rights," she added.
At Kentucky, protesters demonstrated in the Kentucky capital of Frankfort, where Governor Andy Beshear, a Democrat held a news briefing.
Besher said addressing the protesters, "We do have some folks up here in Kentucky today, saying we should reopen Kentucky immediately, right now. Folks, that would kill people. It would absolutely kill people."
In Utah a Republican candidate for the state's 2nd congressional district, Mary Burkett, also participated people's in the people's rally saying, "The government, at all levels, has overstepped its authority in their request to 'protect' Americans from a virus. The American citizen is perfectly capable of deciding how to best protect themselves," she added.
Meanwhile, the Nurses' Association of Ameria has issued a memo saying these protests go exactly against the health advice that they have been saying again and again. The protesters are putting everyone in an unprecedented risk.
