In addition to the "mom and pop" schools that put funds into restaurants and cafes, the multigenerational housing project was credited with saving the hospitality industry. Young people who lived in cramped or multi-generational housing were given hotel rooms paid for by the government and a food allowance. It gave them room behave as young people will do, because they have a biological need to, and it protected their families and the health service. Of course there was transmission, of course the young can become sick too, but it kept more people alive and well than would otherwise have been the case. Additionally, it gave the youth a few years to save up a deposit for a home of their own, thus in the medium term it stabilised the housing market with more young couples able to afford a place of their own.
