I have family and friends "exposed", thus, I do my bit.
I 'm "jonesing" on not flying.
I have buried a few from the current virus...

Maybe some on multiple threads on RAS will change thoughts when they lose family or friends.
Yes....lockdown kills economy.....
Groups can kill peeps..

I do what I want, you do what you want....sorry if your choice may kill someone you want based on your decision.....hopefully your family, not someone else's family.....

Nuff said.....

You just wished death on my friends and family. Just because you are scared doesn't mean you have the moral high ground. And decisions made from fear are much more likely to be wrong. I don't know what could help you but try to not be scared, being scared is incredibly unhealthy.
