My information for job creation, with the associated payrolls that a segment of it would generate, came from an article in Reason, a Libertarian e-magazine.
The specific illnesses that were listed affect far less than 30% of the population, they also have to be serious enough. According to almost all health information 80% of the population is either immune or has no symptoms that they have it. While influenza is not necessarily a good proxy, the rule for that is, if you are not showing symptoms, you cannot spread it, that may, heavy on the word may, apply to Covid. Even with the current numbers we are looking at less than a one percent death rate, and nearer to .5. That is not incidental, but it needs to be viewed in a perspective, that the disease is not nearly as dangerous as it is reported to be. The Swine Flu, under Obama, had a slightly higher rate, percentage wise, but not numerically.
The debt that was taken on my the Federal Government will be a burden for years, we agree there. Until that is tackled, in a reasonable fashion, with as little pain as possible, the situation will remain difficult, it not increase in danger. Sooner or later people want their money not bonds.
