My understanding is that the global "lock down" was to flatten the curve to ensure that the health system would not be overloaded. This was to ensure that people with Covid that required medical help would not be turned away. If the system was overloaded people who would have otherwise survived would have died due to not receiving treatment.
Most hospitals are now prepared, we understand the hospitalization rate better than we did in the beginning, and we can't hide away forever.
Most of us will get it at some point. The virus probably isn't going away anytime soon and "herd immunity" needs to be achieved through a measured rate of exposure.
If we are to be concerned about filling hospitals the demonstrations and riots should be more of a concern than a rally of 6000 or so or a small sports gathering.

President Trump would have been lambasted in the media for being careless and trying to infect the entire capitol hill.
It was the smart thing to do.

9% of those who get it die.
Those who get it serious, but survive, have potentially life long ailments
Those who get it and recover, seem to get it again, worse.
This isn't ''very little''
I agree that some of the reporting is not accurate for financial reasons.. but this virus isnt a walk in the park
