As governments facilitate the coronavirus lockdown, they have imposed security measures such as mandatory face covers and physical distancing to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Some people are increasingly frustrated with these rules.

Tens of thousands of protesters defied bans on mass gatherings to attend so-called “anti-corona” rallies in parts of Europe.

They say the measures violate personal freedoms.

But government leaders insist restrictions must remain in place, especially as the cooler months approach in the northern hemisphere.

So how should we balance our rights while reducing new infections?
