Protesters against coronavirus lockdown gather near False Creek

A group of protesters opposed to COVID-19 economic and social restrictions marched in Vancouver Sunday.

The latest group of demonstrators gathered along False Creek near Science World carrying signs and megaphones.

This follows other gatherings of coronavirus conspiracy-theorists in Vancouver last month.

BC has forbidden gatherings of more than 50 people and ordered many non-essential businesses closed to prevent coronavirus spread.

The virus has infected more than 3 million people worldwide and the respiratory illness it causes has killed more than 200,000, according to the World Health Organization.

But some people, including the demonstrators on Sunday, believe we would be better off if authorities allowed the economy to reopen.

BC Premier John Horgan has said more details on BC’s plan to reopen will be coming this week.
