Sheriff Daryl Wheeler of Bonner County, Idaho and an organic general-store owner speak up:
Sheriff Wheeler: [We must question] (1) the reliability of the information disseminated by the World Health Organization; (2) our response to that information; (3) the cause-and-effect devastation caused by our response; (4) our responsibility to change course.
Alfie Oakes (store owner): I do believe this is a terrible health crisis. My questions is, does it have to be a terrible economic tragedy too? And who does that help exactly? Does it help that you just lost your job, or your small business? Does it help that you just lost your income or your life savings? Do you feel better about this health tragedy if you also have an economic tragedy to deal with?
