So we should just make sure that the virus is spread to everybody as soon as possible, and those who survive will be immune, right?

Not sure how you got from "Once we have herd immunity this will be (it seems) a total non-issue" to "we should make sure we get everyone sick as fast as possible".

No, not even close.

The issue is we can't overload the hospitals. We either need herd immunity to naturally slow infections, quarantine to slow the spread, or treatment that means people avoid a hospital trip. We don't have option A, we're trying option B, and we're working our collective pharmaceutical bottoms off on option C.
