I am not siding with an opinion for or against lockdowns. My view has always been somewhat mixed. I think the virus is serious, but I dont see how it can go away before a vaccine, or herd immunity.
In a way, I am tempted to think let vulnerable people isolate, and let the healthy risk themselves (if they want to). However the health professionals advise otherwise, so I honestly dont know the wisest course of action. Anyway total numbers projected look awful.
Dr Birx: Birx on Fox News Sunday today: "Our projections have always been between 100,000 and 240,000 [deaths] ... and that's with full mitigation."
White House coronavirus task force coordinator Deborah Birx on Sunday said it was “devastatingly worrisome” that those protesting at state Capitols against stay-at-home orders did not wear masks or practice social distancing, warning that they could unknowingly transmit the novel coronavirus to at-risk relatives.
