Can the economy be saved?

It has been stated for the past month that closing down the US economy was the right thing to do.  Nobody knew how the Corona-virus would spread or how many people it would affect.  As we all adjusted our lives to this new way of living, we are now asking the question on when should the economy open back up?  It seems that everybody has an opinion on this and nobody knows who is right.  Georgia and South Carolina are the first to open up their economies with another group not far behind.  We see States grouping together because they want to have a fair and safe reopening.  Imagine if Indiana were to open up business in their state and Ohio stays closed for an extra month.  Not only will Indiana companies gain a lot of business from Ohio, Ohio will lose business and may never get it back.  State’s have to be cognizant of this fact and at the same time be careful not to open up too early and face a second wave of the virus. 04.29.20
