Scotland and England and Brooklyn demand some kind of return to normality. @DanHenninger, @WSJOpinion
Dan Henninger, deputy editor of the editorial board and Wonder Land columnist; in re: The Great Shutdown Shamble in England and Scotland. Biden is the shutdown candidate: “We can't fix the economy till we fix the coronavirus problem.” The question is, how do we live with the virus? The president said, “Don't let it dominate your lives.” In the springtime, New York was massively shut down; this past week, the mayor and governor somehow identified nine zip codes with infection rates over 3%, and then closed schools, businesses, churches and synagogues. People poured out into the street and objected. We may have reached a point where the population of the US and the rest of the world have said, “Enough; pols have to figure out a way to accommodate this virus.” The Great Barrington Declaration*, signed by 6,000 medical professionals.
* Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health. -- https://gbdeclaration.org
