So the rational view would be to get rid of the virus, then start rebuliding - havnig supported the population through the interim. That's roughly what NZ has done, if not perfectly then as well as we could.
I saw an article somewhere saying that Corona would force the world to rest it's national debt system, or whatever it's called, to zero. I approve. Set the third world nations free, although they may still make the same mistakes, and build a better future. however, I think the willingness of the rich and powerful who profit from the system would be less willing to give it up. :( See You Next Tuesdays

A nice idea, since money is a social construct we've all "bought into" (so to speak) there is no reason why it can't be changed, cancelled, whatever it takes. (I suspect that if we don't do this, some altruistic hacker will eventually break into the world's financial systems and set all accounts to zero, or equalise them - something like this was suggested on a TV programme, I forget which one - that blighter Nation's stolen my robots, as it were, but I don't mind people using my idea on this one.)

Leicester facing a local lockdown. Quite right too, get them off the bloody beach. God only knows how that would affect league games if only part of a league cane play
