At a time when we face a deadly disease outbreak that could cripple the economy, why are people filling restaurants every night?
I realize they need the business, but great way to spread disease.

I suspect they will close the restaurants and bars as Ohio and Illinois have already done. Yesterday on the news they were interviewing bar owners in Denver with people in the background hugging, sharing food etc.

Default does anyone know the lady that lost her life/virus?

Sounds like she was living on her own and playing bridge. She must have been in pretty good health and playing bridge, enjoying her life. This is way too tragic.

I know some people in their later years, that are pretty active. Guess, that health officials need to quit saying "underlying problems." This is scary enough, without making it worse. JMO

All the people going nuts at the grocery store aren't social distancing either. I tried to order online groceries for my parents and they're running low on delivery windows and of course we may not get anything we order....

That being said, I've seen eating at a restaurant being in the list of 'ok' things to do as recently as two days ago - so I think people are also getting lots of different information and may think what they are doing is just fine.

Gotta skate to where the puck will be.

Most people are either uninformed or in denial.

The Back Death didn't go away. Those who were g0ing t0 die did.
Are we looking at a 20% reduction in the population?

That's not how infectious diseases work. You die because you get exposed, and your exposure depends on where you go and what you interact with. There is no fate to this.

The government shutting down all the businesses will cripple the economy.

Which should drive the point home that this isn't some overblown media-driven hoax. It's real, and it's unlike anything anybody has seen in this country in well over half a century.
