    I don't see this as being a good analogy. The patient was going to died anyway.

    Look at it this way, we decided to sacrifice our economy to stop (or slow) this virus, instead of letting nature take its course.

    The 1918 flu was ranked fourth on the economic disaster scale, ahead of the Great Depression, and yet, a hundred years later, the population has grown, quite a bit.

    The timetable for these occurrences might become shorter as the population keeps growing.

    A government that does not know what to do but feels it must do something will sometimes do the wrong thing, like PA closing all the rest areas on the turnpike. ( the trucking companies made them reopen a third of them).

    I'm no fan of Wolf but I think he (or his legal team) understands the law. That's why all of this 'shutdown' for private business is suggested/encouraged/recommended. The media are the entities using words like mandated and required. Wolf also stated there will be no enforcing the closures because he knows he can't.

    Perhaps he had legal power to close public schools though?

    I just read that they have modified the plan to make selected areas more serviceable. I think there is a saying for Governor ("Tommy Boy") Wolf - - "ready, fire, aim". Good on the truckers. Last night everyone of them on I-80/81 was closed.

    Probably not, just like the media and law enforcement.

    Now that the suggestion has moved to an order, Wolf is breaking PA law. And I guess the enforcement level will tell a tale.
