> Then there are those dying, and there are the survivors that will live with damaged health. Reduced pulmonary function (e.g. fibrosis), lasting fatigue, kidney issues, etc. You don't really want even only 3% of your population with that kind of sh*t.

The trouble is that those who suffer permanent lung damage could have been saved only by vaccine. And we don't have one. And we won't get one until autumn at the very least. And then there's a problem of actually manufacturing and vaccinating 8 billions of people. Can we realistically stop infection from spreading until 2021? I'm not sure.
