Wall Street Journal editorial board article (19 March 2020):

“Rethinking the Coronavirus Shutdown“

“No society can safeguard public health for long at the cost of its economic health.”

The article is correct about the economy.

But it doesn’t reflect an understanding of infectious disease epidemiology.

There is really no balance, especially if/when the virus mutates into a more virulent form!l.
