Most people who die are already retired. Not saying that to be mean, or that we should not care about the eldery, but rather I don't think his point that "“Thailand should gradually open the country, because human resources are the most important factor. It takes about 20 to 30 years for human development, and if those people die it will be very difficult to restore the lost human resources,”  is valid.

It would have been fascinating to see how this pandemic played out if the highest death rate was.....let's say......males in there mid 40's to mid 50's....as opposed to some old folks stuck in care homes.

People believe that this is some economic policy-induced recession. It’s not. It’s a choice-recession and when we decide to unchoose the choice then the economy will rebound! If it’s economic like Bush’s disastrous economic policies that caused the worldwide depression or like Trumps economic policies that brought the US to ruin then yes it will last years. But this is not the same.
