Despite the "the death count is exaggerated" rhetoric, people are afraid.
A modicum of fear is a positive.
Panic, bad! But due caution based on a bit of fear is good.
It's why we don't run into traffic.
That fear of getting hit, makes take pause and mitigate our risks.
That's all this is.
It has NOTHING to do with freedom or rights.
