Do you think we should attempt a "Tank the hit" approach to COVID-19?

If you weren't aware, for most of the population coronavirus isn't much more deadly than the flu but for the elderly it's way more deadly. This gave me an idea: we put the most vulnerable portion of our population under strict quarantine while letting the disease run through the healthy portion (after which they acquire an immunity to it). Then you remove the strict quarantine on the vulnerable population and the heard immunity among the healthy population will limit the transmission rate to the vulnerable ones and "flatten the curve". In other words the healthy population "tanks the impact" of the virus. I have some reservations about this approach in terms of implementation and ethics. What are your thoughts?
