He's misguided. He's saying that people should ignore lockdown and quarantine in order to get the economy back on track because he thinks that these procedures were made just to save old people. He's saying old people can be sacrificed for the economy. But in fact, if everyone did everything as normal, the disease spread would be so vast so quickly that even young people will die in significant numbers from hospitals being overwhelmed, the same young people who he said he loves and wishes to preserve the economy for.This is sad.

The best way is as China did; lockdown harshly and grind the economy to a halt for a short period of time to aggressively eradicate the virus and then, when it is gone, pick up the economy aggressively as well. In the grand scheme of things, 2-3 months with the economy halted is not a big deal and certainly nothing compared to unchecked COVID-19 spread.
