The big picture: “THIS IS A FALSE CHOICE!!!!!!” MacroPolicy Perspectives president Julia Coronado says in an email.

“If we go back to work and the disease continues to spread not only will people die and the 20% of our economy dedicated to health care be overwhelmed, but people won’t have the confidence to resume normal activity.”

“They won’t go on airplanes or travel or hold conferences or events because they won’t be able to trust the public health response has been adequate to protect them.”
