Everything we do only postpones the inevitable. This virus is going to run its course and we can’t hide from it.
We can wreak the world wide economy to the point of a collapse that’s worse than the last depression and it will still run its course.
Only difference is that a collapse will kill more people then even the most liberal estimates of what the virus would kill.
I do believe that some social distancing and masks can help protect the more vulnerable but a total shutdown is just colossal stupid, which is what California just did and what Texas is talking about.
