Comparing the pandemic to a fire, the only way to diminish this fire (since you cannot kill a virus...per Dr. Sanya Gupta) is to diminish that which sustains it....this virus "feeds" on humans so, cutting off its food supply by social distancing is our ONLY way to slow and somewhat "manage" the beast....there are signs that this is happening around the world but, the "fire" has NOT been is STILL burning so, "Opening" the economy back up at this point would just be throwing fuel on this fire and it WOULD flare up, most probably undo all the good that has been done with the shut down and quite possibly roar into the conflagration that we were trying to avoid in the first place
