Bloomberg's response isn't unique or insightful, it's what you're supposed to do - stay home, don't panic.

An individual can afford to miss a few days. Then you get the idiots who make a job out of spreading the virus, next thing you know it's spreading everywhere.

An entire country can afford to have a giant fraction of its population out of work for a few days, but it's a giant price tag. Morbidity - that's the point folks are missing. Nobody's saying it's going to be the next black death.
