I’m a senior myself. After hearing some stats and discussion on CNBC this morning, I’m wondering if a lot of businesses and money could be saved by just quarantining seniors and folks with underlying conditions instead of the whole population. Carl on CNBC stated he read that out of all the deaths in Italy (over
29k edited to correct number of 2,500, so far), no one under 30 years old had died. Are we going about this in such a way that we will crush our economy when it might not need to be everyone under a quasi-quarantine.
I have no idea if the above has merit, but I thought a discussion about it might, since I personally know of two small businesses that are likely to fail in a few weeks. Tax breaks don’t help if you have no income.
Thanks to anyone who contributes, and good luck to us all!
