I'm worried about people dying but more worried about our economy. Is it time to open businesses and use common sense about going out?

I just saw on TV that Sweden has not locked anything down but people are careful about what they are doing. Time for us to do this.

    Lockdown is just demanding a reduction in physical social contact. You should move your business to internet; or, your operations must keep social distance more than 1.5 meters; with good hyfgenic environment.

    In addition, you should clean the floor with bleach (with 6.7% sodium hydrochlorite) deluted in 1:99. Korean and Italy are keeping constant of infection rate due to cleaning street with that deluted bleach. If everyone can add that deluted bleach to his/her sewage systems, the infection may be reduced.

    Even if we in the UK manage to get this virus under some kind of 'control' we are then facing rebuilding what damage this has done to life as we know it.   I don't think we will see 'normal' again and for sure, will be paying for all this money the Chancellor has been throwing around, for a very long time.   Far longer than the time I have left alive, for sure.   Look at how many years of austerity we had just about come through after the mess the last Labour Government left!    If you thought that was no fun, you ain't seen nothin' yet!!

    If you’re more worried about the economy than people dying, then you’re an empathy free gobshite.

    No, use your common sense. If restrictions are lifted now people will meet up with friends and family and spread the disease. One carrier gives Covid-19 to four people which becomes twenty, then fifty, then hundreds and thousands and we'll be back to lock down in a few weeks, by then it will be unstoppable. 

    We must remain locked down until there are no new cases of Coronavirus. I don't like it anymore than you do, but it's absolutely essential if we are ever going to get this world back to normal.

    Economies have suffered before but all should bounce back within a year or so if all countries adopt the same rigorous standards of lockdowns to defeat the Coronavirus.  Opening new businesses at this time is rather foolhardy, but trying to encourage staff to return when the dangers have passed, or they can work safely, is quite sensible.  The very reason why governments are offering businesses and staff financial assistance to see them through this trying time.  The longer we go into lockdown the more likely we will see this threat pass.  2 cycles of new transmissions, no more than 2 months, if all people did this, and closed all borders.  There will always be those who flout such restrictions out of disregard to others health and well-being; heavier fines, jail terms would be beneficial for those kinds of people.  Unfortunately essential services personnel will still be required to work, which puts them most at risk.  Out of respect to the great work they perform we should all be doing our utmost to comply with the inconvenience of lockdowns.

    Being dead is pretty catastrophic for the individual concerned, look, there will be a Worldwide recession by the end of this, there will have to be a rebalancing of international economics, everyone will be poorer for a couple of years then rebuilding will happen. Follow the simple rules for 2-4 months, suck it up, then slowly start back to *normal*, it's not difficult, just different...

    People in the UK wouldn't be careful about what they are doing. We've seen enough examples of that.

    And scientists in Sweden think they are headed for a catastrophe. Only time will tell.
