The figures have started to drop in Italy for the first time, which is very encouraging as they suffered the most deaths…more than China. I agree with Trump, economy and health must be tackled together or the mess will be catastrophic. Anyway, the virus was ‘Made in China,’ so it shouldn’t last too long.
The problem is that you cannot make decisions about the economy without making decisions about people’s health and lives. And Trump has no empathy.
Hmmm, keep everyone out of work with no way to pay their bills, buy food, keep their jobs or, bring them back to work as the scientists develop a treatment and vaccine for this virus (A virus you currently have a 98.7% chance of surviving or not even knowing you have). All that with the information that the survival rate keeps increasing as more people are being tested. I guess Jace would choose to make people suffer while decimating the economy and driving the country into years of recession for a virus that may end up being be no more deadly than the common flu? Population of China is 1.4 Billion/China Covid 19 Deaths is 3200…Population of US is 320 million/US Covid 19 deaths is about 700/US influenza deaths is about 38,000 this year. So let’s crush the economy?
I don’t believe that Trump is lacking empathy, he is in a acutely difficult situation trying to ward off this pandemic while trying to avoid the economy going down the toilet.
Trump must juggle between economy and health just to keep our heads above water.
