One of the hopes is that social distancing slows the spread so that medical resources are available for those who become critical.
It spreads through human contact and there is no vaccine. What would you like the government to do?
No one likes this whole situation, but if the government would have mandated quarantines or closures even earlier, people would have complained then, too. I think the government is in a pretty tough spot (regardless of how I feel about some of them).
Not sure why your landlord or utility providers shouldn’t get paid. You’re still consuming their products, yes? Why should your ability to pay them change the contract that you entered into?
Interesting times, that’s for sure.
Hope you and everyone here is safe and finds peace amid this scary situation.
