A website posted this ‘Everyone Jumps Off Bridge After New Government Order Telling Everyone To Jump Off Bridge’ [LINK].
After state governments across the country directed their citizens to shut down their businesses and just kinda hope things worked out, a new order has been issued: everyone is to jump off a bridge immediately.
Although the article is being witty, it is at the same time a very good article.
In reality if everybody did ‘jump off a bridge immediately’, it would cure the Coronavirus problem that very moment. No one would then get the Coronavirus or indeed any other virus. It would also mean no one would get cancer. It would also mean no one would ever die afterwords. Clearly because everybody would be dead.
But this is the point, on paper, ‘jump off a bridge immediately’ is a perfect solution to fixing the Coronavirus problem. But in reality it is a dreadful solution, as it means everybody is dead.
This seems to not be too far from the UK’s and many other solution to fix the Coronavirus problem, by simply telling everybody to stay inside. On paper this works. But as with the ‘jump off a bridge immediately’ solution, the result is you have problems, in this case, the world economy crash and many become unemployed [LINK] and we end up with many deaths due to the lock down [LINK].
