[ExI] deaths

Some are protesting the economic shutdown while death rates are still
fairly high in the Northeast.

What will be the effect of opening up?  More deaths.  Waiting too long with
hurt the economy more than it needs to be hurt, and not waiting long enough
means more unnecessary deaths.

How in the world can a rational decision be made as to when to open up?  I
think doing so now is too soon, but what do I know?

What does anybody know that can solve this problem?  Tradeoff - more
deaths, or more harm to the economy?

I vote for as late as possible, not any earlier.  The economy will recover,
if more slowly.
