I assume that you aren't living on the streets, or payday to payday. People need to have access to shelter and food, otherwise they are forced to go out and expose themselves to infection. Or spread it.
Reducing the numbers of people on the streets was crucial. It needed to be down to 10% to have a chance of beating the virus.
Helping push those numbers down was a good move.
I think those numbers need to be pushed down on a permanent basis, but again, we're a democracy, and the voters don't see it as a priority.
