This is a good example of the unintended consequences of the covid social distancing protocols. Things like this have real negative health impacts on everybody. I read an article the other day about how hard it has been on seniors. Those that are in nursing homes essentially cannot have visitors anymore. Some are trapped in their rooms literally for months. They are basically in prison. Even seniors that are still living at home have difficulties because they cannot get out and do stuff.

then there's the other things like all of the Lost education from subpar schooling. The memories that won't be made because you didn't get to go visit your family this summer. The children that won't be born because a person can't get a girlfriend to knock up because they're stuck in their house. those are all very real negative impacts, and that's just a tiny few. We have to be very careful that we do not let the cure become worse than the disease here. I think there's a case to be made that we've already crossed that line.
