Now you're being ridiculous again. You could push that kind of nonsense on the soapbox.

I don't give a sh*t about stock holders, but when companies are starting to go bankrupt a lot of people will lose their jobs. They won't be paying taxes anymore, but rather will be needing unemployment benefits instead. This is all money that could be used much better.

No I don't think there will be any physical hospitals closed. But when the economic realities are catching up with us, there will not be any excess money for any advanced medicines or equipment anymore.
That's what I meant with that we cannot pay for our hospitals any more. The buildings will certainly still be there, the personnel will mostly be there as well, but the care will be of lesser quality while we cannot pay for as much or as expensive medicine, or medical machinery.
A small reality check for you: Check how many people that is dying every year from cancer or cardiovascular deceases.

On a different note, I'm sure we will see social distancing for a very long time forward, and certain types of businesses will simply have to be sacrificed for now. For example tourism and restaurants.
But a shutdown of society that lasts for an extended time, will throw us into a downward spiral with a lot worse consequences.
