How would not a lockdown save the economy if you risk everyone getting infected? Hospitals have a capacity limit. If everyone gets infected you will risk a complete shutdown and a way higher death rate. Also, the issue with this virus is not that it is lethal for some but that in can spread during the incubation time without you showing any symptoms. And that is during a time window of 2 weeks.
Most people who get infected don't show any severe symptoms or won't die from the virus. Mostly those with a weak immune system or elderly people are dying from the virus. If you fall into those categories, then you should stay home. Everyone else didn't have to because there was no way we can sustain this lockdown for a long time.Last edited by Snoopy - on 24 May 2020
