It sounds really cold but my understanding is that the virus only really kills the elderly and those with serious pre-existing health conditions.
This will be sad, but in terms of long term economic damage the effect may not be that bad, even if the whole human race is eventually infected.
In fact President Trump has said the cure(of basically shutting down economic activity) may be worse than the actual disease.
I understand that the UK government is seeking to slow the spread of the virus in order that the NHS is not overwhelmed, and has to turn away people who are dying. Whilst this is obviously politically unpalatable, it may be that Donald, with his unique business and economic insight, is correct in saying that things should open soon.
PS I think I have had the virus a couple of weeks ago, I have taken the responsible atitude and avoided all contact with the elderly but how long can this go on for?
