And your still probably looking at the Tip of the Ice berg, thinking its the whole of it.
The projections of some of the so-called experts are silly. Recently I've seen one for the UK where a projection of deaths was scaled down from 500k to 20k. The hunger for news means that people who shouldn't get a word in get news time and that can foster fear, paranoia, panic and hysteria.
Meanwhile, the economy is getting hit hard on a level that is approaching the financial crisis of the late 2000s. Helping the economy is not going to be an instant death sentence for people infected with corona. The measures are going to get adjusted soon because governments will be looking to find a balance between saving lives and keeping countries running.
I am not putting any stock in what Dr. Fauci says because the truth is that even experts make a lot of guesses. And of course the number of confirmed cases is growing when the number of tests is growing as well with each passing day.
The lost job to death ratio is well above 1,000:1, so your "even if 100 people lose their jobs for every 1 death" shows that you aren't aware of the numbers. You thought you are highballing, hence the "even if", but your statement was actually significant downplay of the magnitude. And no, people won't get their jobs back in a month or two when your side of the argument is that the lockdown shouldn't be reduced after Easter. That's the main point of contention here, after all. If you propose that the same strict measures have to continue because we are nowhere near the point to open things back up again, then the people who have lost their jobs won't have an opportunity to get rehired because businesses will continue to be closed.
"It's about saving lives" is something that the majority goes along with because it sounds morally good. I've touched on this in my prediction post yesterday. But such solidarity has limits and when living standards drop in both monetary value as well as social life, then people will begin to think more about themselves than anyone else. There are people who already had a hard time going through two weeks of measures and the next two weeks will feel even longer and more depressing. An outlook of an extension is bound to make them change their mind on solidarity, and the longer the measures continue, the louder the cries for a different approach will be.
I've likened it to the refugee crisis in 2015 when most of the EU citizens embraced solidarity, but eventually a U-turn was performed by the EU and the borders got shut as much as possible. EU citizens at large were fine with people drowning in the mediterranian sea as long as that meant no more big waves of refugees coming to Europe. So it should be expected that rather soon the population at large will be fine with an approach of isolation for corona risk groups while the vast majority of people can start to return to normal. Governments will heed those calls and act accordingly.
