Is money worth more than lives?

Only 14% of people have so far had Covid-19 in a hard hit German town, when expectations are 60% – 80% will get the disease. That means we are in for a long haul.

The scientists seem most concerned our herd immunity is a long way off. So we should worry that Ministers look to be suggesting some people (young?) could be “released” early – the true reason presumably to expose them faster than in a lockdown, to speed us towards that herd immunity.

So are we being softened up to an acceptance of more deaths than necessary so the economy can be helped? Money over lives?
