Salacious reporting. I guess it doesn't really matter if it's true, right?
Salacious??

Why is it so hard to fathom? Most of the population isn't considered high risk. Why do they want to sit at home if they're under impression they won't get sick.

+1 plus people are literally watching their businesses die by the day and since we arenít gonna stay closed for 18months why not open relatively soon, with responsible social distancing. Also, If you live outside of NY, the hospital systems seem able to handle the cases and also we live a totally different, way less population dense life where we can much more easily safely interact with people.

Who did that?
You can protest and that is not the issue. Protesting the country should reopened (it was never closed) while you are making the situation worse (no social distancing) gets you labeled a moron or worse.

Thatís because of car accidents, and other factors that are mitigated by lockdown.

Kinda how even with all the COVID-19 deaths in South Africa, the overall death numbers are lower than usual because (the usually high count for) murders are down due to the lockdown.
Kinda makes one wonder, why are we only concerned about people dying from COVID-19 and not everything else? maybe we should just go into permanent lockdown and we can save so many lives every year...

Car crashes don't have exponential growth.

So deaths only matter when their cause has exponential growth?

Government intervention makes sense when dealing with anything that has a high R0 value, high death rate, and zero immunity/vaccine/treatment.

Skydiving or driving don't have high R0 values...

If you want to stay home to ensure you never get into a car accident, that's your choice.
