100,269 Dead

Over 100k dead now in the US from the virus [*]. That's about a 9/11 every day for over a month.

And with all the idiots we have following Trump, I think we'll be lucky to keep it under 200k before this is over.

Wrongful death lawsuits?

Are there any lawyers here? I am honestly confused why the owners of almost all businesses are not scared sh*tless over the prospect of wrongful death claims against them if they reopen before the virus is under control.

It looks like reopening too soon will cost an enormous number of lives. Do business owners now have the right to kill their staff and customers to make a profit? Or does the virus count as some kind of "act of god" that gives everyone immunity from being incredibly stupid and reckless with other people's lives?

In a just world, the politicians would be held culpable as well, but I can imagine how they'd have some protection from the consequences of their stupidity. But business owners? I don't get it.

All I can think of is that it's not been a focus of the news, and those few that do consider it assume that the almighty GOP will hold them blameless.
