There are only two solutions to the coronavirus problem: herd immunity and/or a vaccine. Hiding in isolation until the nation experiences bankruptcy is not a solution; that policy represents shallow emotionalism. 

We hope — but really do not know — if the vaccine will be effective. Should that prove to not be the case, herd immunity will be the only option.

Postponing exposure to the virus indefinitely is good policy only if that strategy is less damaging than national bankruptcy.
