If coronavirus killed the poor instead of the elderly, would the economy have still been shut down?

Yes, because shutting life down is just a thing they decided do to (and, moreso, keep doing) unrelated to reality, data, science, or any other buzzword the same people tend to use.

My concern is they'll start killing the homeless if they need a higher bodycount.

Yes, there was a recession/depression coming (we were getting to the end of a business cycle and also bond-yield curve inverted last year) so this makes for a perfect excuse. Also, a crisis like this is used to broaden government power.

What Kel said. Its really just killing people who are over 70, the average age of corona deaths is 82. So they shut down the economy to protect people on death's door anyway and who long ago retired.

This wasn't about protecting anybody, it was about government power

If that was the case you wouldn’t have things like them putting COVID patients in nursing homes in what looks like an attempt to up the body count.
