We Are Approaching COVID-19 Gut-Check Time

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

In the coming days, the President Donald Trump will have to make a lose-lose decision to either inaugurate a graduated return to work or keep the country locked down for weeks longer. Economists will likely urge him to restart the economy as fast as possible. Epidemiologists will warn of a second viral spike if millions go back to work. Trump will either be praised for saving the American economy or damned for dooming thousands. Timelines grow shorter. The virus and the draconian reaction to it are wearing down a quarantined America. We are on the verge of learning a lot more about the virus that will result in as much disagreement as relief.
