2. I have seen lots of people say that it is to slow down the demand on hospitals. However, hospitals can't do much to treat corona virus, it's just a strong flu. So, from what I have read, the treatment from hospitals is administer fluids or oxygen in extreme cases. I can drink fluids at home. Do regular people go to the hospital when they get the flu? I never have. I don't get it often but when I have I stay home, hydrate, and ride it out. So, it seems like most people should not be going to the hospital anyway so a "run" on the hospitals doesn't seem like a valid reason for shutting things down.
And for the respiratory insufficiency... do you have an artificial lung or a respirator helper at home?

I agree with you that not all going to the hospitals should be there, but it is harder that a flu. Some patients that have got over the illness have lost up to 30% of pulmonary capacity and the flu doesn't usually leave such hard disabilities behind once you get over it.

I don't have links right now because such information is not desired right now to be that public, but I know many doctors (specialists in different areas), nurses and other people being there in first line that say similar things without knowing each other.

But hey (I just want to save you the effort of having to type it), I am just a random poster in the internet, all what I say is non official BS.

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.
