No one is saying that these are easy decisions, but governments have to take more into account than just what they are being advised regarding Covid. This is why they are in positions of leadership, in order to take these difficult decisions.
Assuming the "more into account" is the economy, the following post nicely covers it. This is becoming the majority view btw.

I see your point absolutely. There are economists, however, who argue that a limited sharp lock-down is economically better than a long and painful muddling through with scared consumers. That is of course assuming the lock-down works.
