The problem is most average citizens are driven by emotions. The statistics don't matter to them even if they are readily available. There will always be some who can only accept a zero-death policy.
I think the people who want Singapore to open up should join the healthcare sector and help out. Or give money to increase the pay of essential workers.

Nobody is prepared to live with any pandemic. It's all about adapting to the situation. And no, you don't have a choice.
Covid-19 isn't the first and certainly won't be the last. Nobody knows when the next one will strike.
