So what's your plan? Just let everyone get infected and whoever survives, survives?
I think it's reasonable to have some trust that the government is trying to protect us. This is a war at this point.
Everyone already is or was infected. That's what you're failing to understand. This was being spread 2 months before China took any actions and hundreds of thousands of people left Hubei by then. That's why the "first cases" were community spread with no link to travel. We literally saw an anomaly in a nursing home full of half-dead people, tested for it, and lo and behold found it. It was already here. There are hundreds of thousands or millions more who either have it or have developed the antibodies from fighting it off.
It is a non-issue except for very old and very infirm. UK had it right before they kowtowed to pressure.
