over 12,000 with H1N1 in 2009.

I am looking at that as a metric.

Even though testing has increased, the death rate is creeping, up meaning deaths are increasing at a faster rate than confirmed cases, now at 1.5%. Might not be real significant but it might and it's not good.

First it was in China, then Italy, then WA, then NY. It's gonna be everywhere.

We can't contain it. It's too late and we don't have the will.

We've been behind the curve the entire time. I don't see that changing...

Why?
And what will you say when it tragically blows by that? What will "that metric" mean then?

There is a significant amount of editorial content with a specific political slant in those words. I get the impression he cares about the people and families very much. So much so, that he wants them to not get the virus AND he wants their finances to not collapse. The former is very important. So is the latter. The collapse of the American middle class WILL HAPPEN if the economy remains in shutdown for months.
The Trump administration and congress are currently trying to prop up the economy to the tune $2.2 trillion (assuming the bill passes congress to be signed). That is a stopgap, but it won't last that long before small businesses begin to fold and many will never return. You are right in that the problem will not be available labor. It will be available jobs. You call this a "sector". Small businesses provide 90% of the jobs in the USA. That is more than a sector.
Keep this economy closed into the summer and the result will make the Great Depression into the Above Average Depression.


Trump has previously called for a return to normalcy by Easter, that's only 3 weeks away.

No doubt that we are reading the tea leaves quite differently. The 2.2 Trillion will prop us up short-term, although from what i'm reading, don't believe it to be well spent and hope the House will vote it down or write a more progressive version to send back up.

Ask the recent dead if they would have preferred life or a temporary depression.

16,000 have died from the flu alone this year. That said I would expect this virus to exceed both the flu and H1N1.

I have a few relatives who have PHD's in the medical field from UCLA (I'm East Indian) so there's a few docs in the family. Wont get into details about that. However, according to them this idea of containing the virus was never realistic without a immediate travel ban and quarantine. Especially considering the virus is contagious without showing symptoms. In todays modern society the spread of something like this inevitable. Which is why so many nations are dealing with this.

Just because that is the most recent metric that didn't cause the hysteria everyone seems to be in.

We will soon know if it means anything.

Calm down dude.
