I should have said (to put it into context)...As a result of this, we may be experiencing what is called a "casedemic". A number of people (of varying backgrounds) are arguing this because fo the low numbers of hospitalisations and mortality. This is mainly in Europe and the Northern US states, which are seeing the same effects. But, it is heavily contested and is certainly not the accepted scientific opinion and so, in general, is not the basis of government policy. This is really important stuff because if it is a casedemic, then we are unnecessarily causing all sorts of problems including damaging our economy to eradicate an issue that does not exist and, consequently causing vast numbers of unnecessary deaths. Worse we are inhibiting community immunity and so encouraging worse problems over the next winter (assuming you think the virus is seasonal). And, if it is wrong, then not acting to reduce the numbers of cases will cause all sorts of problems including damaging the economy and cause large numbers of deaths. Either way, some people will make claims about government ministers having "blood on their hands" and the more extreme of them will claim that it was deliberate. This is the nature of public panic. Meanwhile, less respectable commentators will be whispering in our ears that the disease might never have existed, that it is a mistake by government or, worse, a conspiracy by China, the biochemical industry, the military-industrial complex or global capitalism or that it is not different to flu or any number of other things. They will question the efficacy of every policy while claiming that some other solution (drug, behaviour, religious observance, etc.) will solve all the issues. Who'd be the minister in charge?
Anyway, our solution (my family) is that we discussed it and have chosen to adopt the course of maximum safety for the time being. We will follow government guidance, even if it seems nonsensical at times until we have firm evidence that it is wrong. We also think that we should accept that we have a duty to respect the opinions of others and to accommodate their beliefs in our behaviour even if it impinges on our freedom to choose provided that such restrictions are reasonable.
