COVID-19 has taken over the U.S., with tens of thousands of deaths since the start of the year. State governors were initially left on their own to figure out how to implement social distancing, deciding at different times to give shelter-in-place orders. Since then, the federal government has begun to take more steps to intervene, but it seems to have done more harm than good in some cases.

One of the many ways President Donald Trump has caused more trouble is by implying that the economy is a bigger priority to the nation than human lives. He has suggested multiple times that the country should re-open before any health authority has deemed it safe. And his followers are taking his word over anybody.

In Columbus, Ohio, a group of protestors crowded outside of the Statehouse Atrium, demanding that Ohio businesses reopen. Photographer Joshua A. Bickel snapped a shot of them banging on a glass window, demanding Gov. Mike DeWine let them go back to Target:

Yes, they’re packed together, faces uncovered, and screaming with their whole mouths.

The image went very viral because everyone pretty much recognized it for what it is: a still from a zombie movie.
