One more thing I would like to add. Actually two more things.
Unlike the Spanish flu of 1917/1918 which wiped out young healthy people and children with as much prejudice as other segments of the population, Covid-19 seems to prefer people who are older and more infirm. While certainly not all patients that succumb to Covid-19 are old, the vast majority are.
These draconian economic steps we've taken disproportionately impact the younger generation both now, and in their future (what is the national debt these days?).
Is that fair?
We cannot stay closed forever. Risk is everywhere. I dont want to die on a ventilator struggling for air, but then again I don't want to die of PCa either, or a heart attack or a stroke or a car accident....or (fill in the blank).
the ole national debt argument. we are all socialists now, comrade. the fed was cutting interest rates before Covid at the height of "the greatest economy ever"..
