News of The Coronafrenzy

I have now – more or less spontaneously – decided to write more or less the same article I’ve just got out in German in an English version, just somewhat shorter.

The Roman philosopher Seneca once remarked, that many die from their fear of death. He meant single persons.

Now it seems to me that we may see the phenomenon on a mass scale.

How can we face a big crisis when everything is shut down? How can necessary daily goods be delivered when everybody has to stay at home for their schoolless kids or anyway?

They now argue that the spread of the virus cannot really be stopped, but that we could slow it down so that there be more time for the health care system.

Sounds logical at first glance, but I darn damn think it ain’t.
