Article about Covid-19 and social distancing
This article, although not by an epidemiologist, seems to build a solid case for drastic social distancing measures, and is in agreement with current scientific consensus.
You might want to read it in order to understand why your country should implement these measures. No existential threat, but much suffering can be avoided. I am particularly thinking about our UK neighbours, I think they should not repeat France's mistake of implementing social distancing one week later than we could have.
