    The oppressive restrictions imposed by our own government are driving us toward a looming depression. We must end this massive shutdown of life in our country.
    The main issue is the panic: the fact that businesses are getting destroyed, that people’s lives are being upended, not by the virus, but by the fear. Why isn’t our mental health as important as our physical health? How is it that all life as we know it has stopped because of this pandemic? The medical practice that we have gone to for 30 years is no longer seeing patients! How is it possible that, all of a sudden, nothing matters but the COVID-19 patients? Doesn’t the health and well-being of all Americans matter?.

    The CDC estimates that from October 1, 2019 through February 29, 2020 there have been 34 million flu illnesses and 20,000 flu deaths in the U.S. An editorial in the New england Journal of Medicine says that coronavirus may ultimately be more akin to a severe seasonal influenza. Hysterical response is disproportionate to the underlying data that we have of COVID-19.

    A prolonged economic shutdown will lead to deaths as well, in the form of increased rates of depression, substance abuse and suicide. This shutdown needs to end, soon.
