I truly hope they are not expecting 70% of Indians to be infected. What will they say if India manages to stay well below their 70% mark... How should they solve the great India puzzle then?Or the entire Indian medical system is broken.
I agree completely. Unlike other natural disasters that destroy infrastructures and facilities, this one simply halts things. Everything will still be in its place by the time this is over. People will go back to what they do the next day and everything will be back to 100%. People will forget about this and kisses and hugs will come back too...Only if you lack imagination and history. Spanish flu did far worse heck even Swine flu. The economies will recover from this, even for profit.
I have to state the obvious which is my perception is affected by my environmentmost of those have been NYC cases. Which skew the numbers.
farther more the deaths related to pneumonia’s often sit in those numbers.
The States decide how to react. However even then it’s not entirely clear cut. California is on a Lock down as is Massachusetts, Washington state and New York State. But in the case of NY most of the cases are in NYC not the more rural upstate.
California again it’s mostly centered in the cities LA county and the Bay Area has a hugely dense population almost like a mega city.
in Washington state it’s centered to in King county.
as such most of the rest just have a handful of cases. Lockdown orders impose huge penalties of economic hardships. They can make matters worse as if you can’t get food or basic functions you bring in worse issues.
The cure is worse than the disease.
California has had over a third of the unemployment claims thus far as nonessential business closed.
The company I work for has recently responded by cutting a shift from my work place. My shift in fact as such I am burning vacation time to make up for it and using some of my savings. I am not happy about that. But that’s what a lock down does.
Totally agree. This is a black swan event and weak companies will die and the strong will survive. Companies with strong balance sheets will take this opportunity to take over small players and expand.Only if you lack imagination and history. Spanish flu did far worse heck even Swine flu. The economies will recover from this, even for profit.
