An issue the CDC is currently is COVID-19. The reason this virus is a huge concern is due how
dangerous the virus can be even fatal. The virus is also very fast spreading and can be
transmitted just by being near someone which makes it very hard to contain and control the
disease. This virus also hinders many businesses and other things that humans are accustomed to
which is why there’s a rush to get it contained. A main controversy of the virus is wearing a
mask, which can save lives and help slow the spread of the disease. In many places you’re
required to wear a mask, which is a controversial problem for many ignorant people. Many
people believe that wearing a mask is a violation of your rights and freedom which has led many
people to protest about it.
