Let us have more respect for those who disagree with the pandemic precautions. People are facing loss of their livelihood, hunger and despair.
The evidence tells us that we are doing what we must do to minimize the deaths, but if you have ever noted a link between poverty and heath or depression and health, we are still killing people. This is not a false choice; this is a terrible choice to face. There will come a day when shutting down so much of the economy exacts a worse price than the disease. I can only hope that our leaders can find the least bad option in these terrible times.
