It doesn't look like the fear of the coronavirus is keeping people away from one another in Chicago.

The governor wants us to social distance, so do the top health officials in the country.

So while walking the dog in Royal Oak, where the amount of people out and about is staggering, it's like playing the game "Frogger" in real life. 

Apparently not everyone is so careful because a photo that has been shared by E. Jason Wambsgans from the Chicago Tribune shows that social distancing isn't being practiced in Chicago.

The caption says, "606 Trail, March 25, 2020, 6:25 p.m."

Some people commented on the photo saying the lens he used made people look closer than they are. One Twitter user came to his defense, "As a few people pointed out, that photo of The 606 was taken with a telephoto lens, which can make it appear that people are closer together. But here's another photo @ejwamb took yesterday on The 606, without that effect."

Say what you will, it doesn't look like the fear of the coronavirus is keeping people away from one another in Chicago.
