Let's see numbers in Germany...
80 million people, around 20 million in the risk group, 30k intensive places in hospitals...

Numbers in Spain...
45 million people, around 12 million in the risk group, 10k intensive places in hospitals (and that being generous)

And I suppose other countries are even worse preparated.


If we don't slow it down... the hospitals will get full and won't be able to manage everything.

So the more people of the risk group are infected at the same time, the higher will be the number of deads.
And indirectly the higher will be the number of other victims, because hostpitals will be that full that maybe have not capacities for people having an accident or if there is a fire or whatever "normal" life has prepared. So trying to take care of elder people, there will be less speed of response to take care of the younger ones.

I still prefer to be forced to stay home with bored kids and buying for 3 different housholds than the alternative of a collapsed system.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
