I tried telling that to friends and the immediately called me heartless. And a few other foul names.The problem with the medical/scientific perspective on covid 19 is that doesn't take into account the ripple effect that long-term isolation measures will have on the economy, which will in turn cause havoc that could cost lives. The 'economy' isn't just a section in the newspaper, and governments can only print so much money. At some point, keeping upwards of 40% of the workforce unemployed will become fundamentally unsustainable. Sheltering in place will (not could) indirectly make it even harder to care for people who really need medical assistance with their covid infections.
They can’t possibly believe that everyone is going to want to keep this up till between Jan and June 2021. I’ll say this they’ll be riots in the streets before that Vaccine is found.
Maybe there are some older people who don't mind sitting around doing nothing all day, but we younger people have lives to live. I guess the CDC never stopped to think of that. People continue to gather despite social distancing policies. This is because the term (social distancing), makes no sense to most people.So The earliest Social distancing can be lifted Is I. Not for another 12-18 months. THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL i’m going to go that long penned up in my house. I can not believe the CDC is would sacrifice the Economy to save lives just to risk millions in the future when a world depression hits that goes so deep it will make the Depression of the 1930’s look like a party. The economy can not survive on life support.
