The specter of the danger of contagion was used both originally, for the current lockdown, and subsequently to delay the opening of the company.
in reality there is no “danger” of the infection,
– there is only the possibility of taking a normal flu (which for the vast majority of people is asymptomatic, and which can actually be dangerous for 1% of people, vulnerable subjects who die of influenza every year – people that with the lockdowns were practically sentenced to die).
– the outbreak of influenza epidemics is practically unavoidable: as has been shown by the statistics that emerged in the case of Coronavirus, most of the population had already contracted the disease (which developed asymptomatically) before the start of the lockdown.
Having operated thinking about the “danger of contagion” has produced paradoxical consequences: in 2020 a part of the population did not catch the virus and therefore the epidemic has a longer course, since by reopening the society the virus starts to infect those who are not was still infected (in previous years, which the entire population was immunized for taking the virus – mostly asymptomatically).
Recall that letting the virus spread can produce fewer deaths than in previous years if you start taking precautions to protect vulnerable individuals.
