Umair, I find this 100% twisted. 1 per 1,000 is NOT an overwhelming number. People die; the total additional deaths in 2020 over previous years looks to be about 40,000., because nearly 3 million people die every year in the USA. To "deal with" this crisis, government has shut down much of society much of the year. Tens of millions of people have become impoverished, many homeless and hungry. Children miss their education; businesses go broke, artists can't perform; religious groups can't meet. It's true that shutdown could have been done much better. If people were being paid to stay home, we probably would have gotten over this much more quickly.
