The CDC's job is to try to minimize the number of deaths from the virus


BUT they have no interest or concern about the increase in deaths caused by financial devastation. There was a study that showed that the recession in 2008 led to over 260,000 excess cancer deaths. My point is, minimizing the risk of virus related deaths as the only goal is a very poor way of framing policy. (Link)
