How bad is coronavirus compared to the traditional top causes of EA? Is it something we as a community should be focused on even though it is not at all neglected? At what point is it too economically devastating (—> other kinds of suffering and death) to continue lockdown even without a vaccine?
I read the news, too, but there’s something about the level of response to coronavirus given the very moderate deadliness— especially within EA— that just does not add up to me. Please make the case for me!
