“Sjoe… so very few people know this but… A few years ago I tried to commit suicide whilst listening to Tasha Cobbs. Last night I could see my friends’ eyes widen as I played that very same album. Lucky to be spending this lockdown with people who literally saved my life,” wrote Samora Mangesi.
Samora Mangesi wrote that his friends are the very same people who are the first to be there every time he gets himself into trouble.
“Oh, literally is literally. They were there then too and they physically checked up on me every single day for weeks to make sure I was alive. These are the very same people who are the first to be there every time I get myself into trouble (and that’s a lot) no questions asked,” shared Samora Mangesi.

Social distancing is a term applied to certain actions that are taken by Public Health officials to stop or slow down the spread of a highly contagious disease. The Health Officer has the legal authority to carry out social distancing measures. Since these measures will have a considerable impact on our community, any action to start social distancing measures would be coordinated with local agencies such as cities, police departments, and schools, as well as with state and federal partners.
Social distancing measures are taken to restrict when and where people can gather to stop or slow the spread of infectious diseases. Social distancing measures include limiting large groups of people coming together, closing buildings and canceling events.
Some examples of social distancing measures that would be conducted during a pandemic include:
• Public and private colleges suspending classes, going to Web-based learning and canceling all large campus meetings and gatherings.
• Public and private libraries modifying their operations and restricting people from gathering by allowing people to come in only to pick up materials that have been reserved or requested on-line or by telephone.
• Business changing company practices, setting up flexible shift plans, having employees telecommute and canceling any large meetings or conferences.
Health authorities all across the world are declaring quarantine and encouraging people to practice social distancing by minimizing contact with other people as much as possible and maintaining a distance of at least six feet between themselves to minimize the toll the hospitals and medical staff are experiencing by slowing the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Judging by Samora Mangesi’s video the distance of at least six feet between himself and friends is not observed at all.
