Going back to work next week won't save the economy.

It will just kill more people and prolong the pain.

After weeks of denial and incompetence, the federal government of the United States is finally taking the novel coronavirus seriously and taking some of the right steps to address it.

As expected, these steps are having a devastating impact on the economy and tens of millions of businesses and working Americans.

But they are still the right steps to take.

We cannot have a healthy economy when people are justifiably scared that every social interaction or trip outside their homes might spread infection. Even without government-mandated lockdowns, few people would be using most restaurants, bars, gyms, airlines, hotels, and cruise lines right now anyway.
