You don't kill the economy over a few hundred thousand deaths.

You’ll kill the economy in the process. You’re also a sociopath.

Ask not what our net worth can do for you

But what you can do for our net worth!

Die for the Dow.

So, you do not believe people can chew gum and walk at the same time? People can work and take precautions. But, stopping the economy is going to result in a depression... which would be far worse. All for a few hundred thousands of people. Think how many people a depression is going to kill.

"An estimated 80,000 Americans died of flu and its complications last winter — the disease’s highest death toll in at least four decades."

"The WHO estimates that 250,000 to 500,000 people die of seasonal flu annually."

The flu is not mitigated save for a vaccine. If Coronavirus isn’t mitigated, it will kill millions.

I have worked through it, but my job can be done with social distancing

Chem light... you just don't get it. Millions are going to die if the United States is in a depression. Social distancing and taking care of oneself can occur without a nationwide lock down... which is probably unconstitutional anyway.

You going to sit on the death panel? 20% hospitalization rate. 10% ICU rate. There are 7 ICU beds in Manhattan’s hospital. Who gets admitted to ICU and who doesn’t? If you let 10,000 people get it at the same time that is 2,000 beds, 1000 ICU units that aren’t available.

There have always been pandemics, war, starvation, death, etc., it is a part of living. No one escapes. It shouldn't be something someone fears if they are prepared.
