That's what scares me far more than the health aspect

Yes, I know people who are at higher risk of dying from the coronavirus, and yes, I'll be awfully tore up if it happens. But not more so than if they died of something else. Meanwhile, doctors and epidemiologists tend to have a focus on completely eradicating all possible danger from the virus, because that's their job, and I worry that state and national leadership will agree and not have the courage to decide on a level of acceptable risk and measures that may be less than complete shutdown (such as allowing restaurants to open with a limited capacity.)

I just read a story in the local news about a movie theater that closed permanently. Now, granted, it was not a well-kept business. This was a survival of the fittest problem. But it's not going to be the last such story. What kind of economy are we going to come back to, if we even have the guts to crawl out of the foxhole while there's still a virus out there? How much damage are we willing to do? From what I've seen, a hell of a lot.
