I like the term Arnold Kling has coined, lockdown socialism, because I think it perfectly captures the mind set of many Americans who seem to want more government control of their lives on the premise that the pandemic is a really bad thing.
The same thing happened after 9/11. There was so much public demand for perfect safety from terrorists that government started patting down citizens and rifling through luggage in airports. We could do the same or similar for Covid-19, possibly, too, at the airports.
