Which I will do from the comfort of keeping the hell away from other people as much as possible.

Sure, a vaccine will (probably) build the vast herd immunity that is needed. Shorter term, an effective treatment.

But when you say opening "some business" - that's so nebulous - what businesses? Bowling allies? Nail salons? Would you care to sit in a restaurant full of people . . . and what will you do if one of them starts coughing? Grab your coat and run?

The words are easier to say (write) than to implement in any practical sense. Once you have to be specific - well that will put a perspective on it that helps you realize how deep a sh*t-hole we're in - and - climbing out - the thing you least want to do is fall bank in on the deep end.
