the Hong Kong flu killed 1 million people SARS killed 3/4 million and none of this ludicrous behavior was implemented during these and other epidemics. the cost of what governments are doing is going to last decades.
Let the virus take its course now or we will be having this same conversation year on year for a very long time, for a fraction of the cost the governments should look after the aged and vulnerable and let the virus go to its logical conclusion with small loss of jobs and money. serious cases among the rest of us will be very small and manageable.
not the panic and madness we currently endure.

There’s only one benefit in all these pandemonium and that is, the reduction of carbon emissions in the atmosphere as a result of the grounding of flights, curtailment of road traffic and shutting down of business premises among others. The green campaigners must be behind all of these panic, it would appear.

In the UK, we may also benefit with the commissioning of new NHS hospitals and re-engaging of retired medics and service personnel. There’s also the revival of community spirit, credit to Covid-19.

Well, the economic impact is certainly the trade-off.

Thank you. My sentiment exactly.

There is not doubt that COVID spreads quickly and can be deadly. Let's talk about lessons learned and build them into our daily routine and not just when another outbreak happens.

Everyone should already be washing their hands frequently throughout the day, not just during the cold and flu season, or during a pandemic.

Just my $.02.
