Of course it is a serious I’ll need, but mostly elderly, chronically ill, weak immune system, ayes the odd healthy ones. But healthy adults should be able to work, healthy children play, you are causing a lot of germ-phobia mentally, people wearing masks all day, not get fresh air in lungs for long periods, probably inhaling own phegm,etc into their system over use of sanitizer s, false sense of security, we need germs, to blend in society, done it for thousands of years, yes people will die, in a sense a natural order of things in world of population, Spanish killed 500 million in people to world wide, 100 years ago. We have today better scientists etc, then back then. Yet everyone acting like a world war is in place, far more scary when in the world wars, you never knew when next bomb would come. We are always going to have virus,s and flus, people every year in of less severe flus the we n this. I’m genuinely sorry for I’ll and those that have died and families, not trying to make light of this, but life has to go on,. I’m not a doctor I know. Just my opinion, I’m 61, still in good health, don’t take for granted, but I’d rather die now, then live rest of my life in cloud of fear.
