It's not rocket science.... US has lost 0.03% of its total population to COVID 19. As a comparison, Italy has lost 0.055%, whereas most other comparable countries are around 0.02%. These look like small differences, until you consider the pain and suffering of people losing loved ones in overwhelmed ICUs, where no proper care was possible anymore. Proper distancing measures and crisis management by governments will make up those differences of 0.01 to 0.02 percentiles: and if you think that it's unimportant, and not worth the economic sacrifice, you're certainly entitled to that opinion. Personally, I don't feel entitled to disregard the fate of "some few old and sick people" in order to safeguard my net worth or the stock market, but that's just me...
