going to the store, getting gas, or having stuff delivered will not stop what is now starting to happen.People cannot ‘stay indoors’ indefinitely. They either go out to the grocery, to get gas, or have stuff delivered - all of which are points of potential infection. Again, we seem to be arguing either/or ... which aren’t the only choices.
Bottom line, the less the social isolation, the greater the risk (and the increased risks aren’t limited to individuals making the choice not to self-quarantine).
One of my best friends back in SD just told me tonight that his 16 year old son's best friends dad killed himself. He has been locked in his house, drinking, and fell in to depression. This isn't a story so you feel pity or anything like that. That is a reality. People are getting depressed, they are losing their purpose and focus on what is important to them. The risk of the virus is becoming far less fearful over what else might happen.
whether it is 98, 94, or even 90% survival rate, we have to try to open up the country again. if we dont, we face far bigger risks from what is going to happen to a country locked down and controlled.
