I quite understand his point. If everyone's overreacting than indeed "why do you care" is appropriate for a response. It must be taken in the context of your post (i.e., Corona virus).

That you care about others - who it is likely you will never know or meet - is commendable. You must, however, weigh in that as in the airline face mask analogy (parents must tend to themselves before their children) that we are looking at the flip side of "enlightened self interest" whereby taking care of our own urgent immediate needs is not only in our best interests but in theirs, as well.

No vaccine will be developed if the developers die off! For now, hope that the comparative global isolation of these communities will protect them for a while longer. At least until a reliable treatment is worked out.
