So what percentage do you deem acceptable of a population to die off every time we get a new virus that spreads like this? 0.5%? 1%? 2%? 10%? Or is any number too low/high until it kills someone you care about?
Whether you like it or not, everyone making decisions on this is caught between a rock and a hard place. Sometimes they will get things wrong, and as long as they make changes to their views and adapt accordingly, we have to deal with this. Anyone who thinks "**** it, let's just carry on as normal" is going to say that until someone they care about kicks the bucket.
Until you discover unintended consequences and second order thinking.
Then maybe you'll realise it is a bad idea to just to try and do stuff for the sake of doing stuff, because you feel like you have to do stuff. If you don't understand the situation carrying on as normal are more likely to give a better result.
Look at communist social engineering of how great these good intentions that you think you might have will turn out.
