Exactly. It seems some are still believing in a false choice, where people will magically just go about their business as usual, congregate in crowds (i.e. "the economy") and not notice the pandemic. That's not how this works. Business in these "leisure and travel" and not critical infrastructure related industries is going to drop 70,80,90% without any govt intervention at all. That is a huge chunk of the economy and a huge chunk of the layoffs. There is no option where the economy isn't destroyed in the short term. The only consideration is saving lives and what is best for the long term. I'd say making sure our health care system isn't overrun is priority 1a.
