A Mitigation Disaster

David Catron, The American Spectator

Thomas Sowell famously wrote, “Only in government is any benefit, however small, considered to be worth any cost, however large.” This is essentially where we are in our response to COVID-19. Thus far, every projection of potential fatalities has been far too high, including the projections issued by the Coronavirus Task Force. We know all too well from past experience, however, what the human cost will be if we pursue mitigation strategies that result in widespread unemployment. It will not be, as Dr. Fauci suggests, “inconvenient.” It will kill more of us than COVID-19. It will be, as the President has warned, worse than the problem itself.
