The editorial Michael A. Smith wrote ("Did we protect the most vulnerable as best we could?" The Daily News, May 16-17) was excellent.
I’m 77 years old and in good health for my age even though almost everyone my age has a “preexisting” disease. While “flattening the curve” spreads out the case load and saves hospitals from being overwhelmed, it does extend the “economic misery.” That’s the trade-off.
Now is the time to start opening the economy while minimizing risk to the most vulnerable. We can do both.
