Should we stop this lock down and just let the weak and sick die while saving the economy? ?

Letting them die won't save the economy.

Agreed, except the weak, elderly, and infirm wont be the only ones to die. Healthy people can spread the disease to other healthy people who don’t show symptoms until they have infected many many others. Since testing isn’t widely available even locking things down won’t stop the spread, but it can slow it down.
Trump’s experts have used mathematical models to examine all the possibilities and concluded that locking things down is the best way to save the most lives.........for now.

That's what we do every year with the flu.

Why not? I am sure you have a plan to cover employees who are absent from work for about 2 -3 weeks because they have Covid-19 and aren't well enough to come into work. Now to make it even more interesting would be having 25% of traders absent at any one time period from the stock market floor. Better still would be having employees in the hospitality industry coughing and sneezing all over the place.

we should all go back to work with masks until a vaccine or successful meds are found. we need to turn the economy back on before the food supply is affected. if that happens, it's going to get real ugly, real quick.

What does the economy matter if everyone is dead?

I don't think you quite understand the point of this lockdown. This isn't going to prevent the disease, the sick and weak will die anyway. This is simply about easing pressure on health services.

We do it all the time especially with the flu every year. Nobody blinks an eye. Nobody even considers hurting the economy.
We don't even require immunizations against the flu which would cut flu deaths annually by 20,000-60,000 and save billions in lost work, medical costs, etc.
