The average person doesn't need any care, they just need to stay home, hydrate, and eat well.
My biggest worry is about all the people on the poverty line, working near-minimum wage hourly jobs: when cities shut down, what will happen to their incomes?
Between insurance premiums, co-pays, and payments on myriad medical bills, my wife and I spent 50% (or more) of our income on "healthcare," and because of lung damage from chemotherapy, she is in a higher risk category. We're not on the poverty line, technically, but we're on the "cannot afford another fucking bill/premium increase" line, for sure.
