Thanks for the feedback, and it makes complete sense. I was hoping you might have some insight that I had not heard yet, but I realize this is unprecedented in terms of the effect it is having on the entire world. There just isn't an easy answer to any of this.I just like to talk science, and this thread is going everywhere from bread to media. I don't know what's happening.
To the above, my opinion isn't worth much. Really the only way to answer this accurately is with some good epidemiological models. Truth is I don't know what to do. We have to get this economy back on its feet, but we can't have the entire place turning into New York either.
I think the best answer is going to be hope for some good antivirals. I think vaccine is still too far off to be helpful. If we had a vaccine NOW, we could shut this entire thing down in three weeks.
