usofa says, tell us what is your opinion of closing to avoid the contained contamination of Coronavirus. We spoke about this so many times and said that the authorities running the country
are stuck by between a rock and a hard place. They have two choices,
either to let people do whatever they want.
In the absence of a vaccine, or a true cure, and a medic medication for that pandemic, and end up like
Italy, or France.
The biggest problem
is not in people falling sick. The biggest problem is in the medical facilities that are not equipped to handle so
many patients such influx in number.
the ventilators are one of the most important
medical devices used to help patients.
If in a whole country,
you have only 500, ventilators.
And the people falling sick
So you have to be selective in choosing which 500 to live in which 9500 to die. This is what's happening in Italy.
This is what's happening in most countries that are
facing big problems.
If this outbreak
happens in America,
it's a catastrophe. They're not equipped. The doctors have to decide who to live and who to die. Definitely they will go to people over 60 and say, Sorry, we don't have a ventilator for you.
And reserve the ventilator for someone who's 20 or 30 years of age,
would face the ethical dilemma
of who to choose some of these countries the youth are happy, because the elders are dying,
we can get houses now, when they pass away, we can get jobs, we can save money instead of giving them retirement and
other welfare expenses.
this is option one.
The second option is to lock down everything
which was would cause a lot of discomfort, agitation
and also economical burdens for people who cannot work cannot earn.
quarantine is the best treatment for such pandemics.
For weeks to six weeks of lockdown lockdown would cause the pandemic to wither and fade away with the grace of Allah.
