    The data is changing rapidly and scientists are also constantly learning to reassess the risk of infection and the mortality rate of Covid19.

    No contact and exit restrictions:
    Only at the end of the second week will we see the effects of the current measures". Maybe a little longer
    Nevertheless, the number of cases will continue to rise.

    Very important: This does not mean that the actions(Quarantine) have not worked.

    But what we have gained is time. Time for hospitals and companies to prepare. Time to let the wave of flu pass and relieve hospitals. Time to continue medical research.
    .
    .
    The theory of herd immunity means that if many people survive illness and are then protected against reinfection with the virus, this protects the entire population. It is estimated that this is achieved when 60 to 70% of people are immune. #That's right, we' re not 100% sure this is gonna work. At worst, it could lead to more deaths


    The Qurant├Ąte will not last forever. The adults will go to work normally and the children will be sent back to school. Each country has its own strategies.

    #A question to everyone: Herd immunity or shutdown?

    Herd immunity by the way of shutting down, i.e slowly building it up and not allowing spike like Italy did.
    Another scenario is fast and harsh lockdown as in Hubei, China may contain the outbreak in a single region or several regions at worst and protect the rest of the country. But that's way too much to expect from non-totalitarian governments and there is no 100% certainty it will work as supposed still. Maybe China is manipulating the data and maybe there is still a chance for a secondary wave nonetheless.

    I'm like that every morning after I smoke 2 packs in the previous evening. Give me 3 days of physical work and less than a pack a day and I'm like fitness maniac in terms of breathing.

    USA loses 500,000 millionaires as corona virus pandemic erodes fortunes of ultra-wealthy
    https://finance.yahoo.com/news/us-loses-500-000-millionaires-152034654.html

    The number of millionaires in the U.S. has plummeted from a record-high as the dual financial and health crises from the coronavirus pandemic slowly destroy the fortunes of the richest Americans.

    At the end of 2019, there were an unprecedented 11 million American millionaires, evidence of the historic 11-year economic expansion and the tax cuts and ultra-low interest rates that accompanied it, according to a new study published by research firm Spectrem Group.

    But the number of households in the U.S. above that threshold has dropped by at least 500,000 as of Friday. Wealthy Americans are more likely to feel the effects of a stock-market free-fall because they own more equity than the overall population. According to recent Federal Reserve data, the top 1 percent of households owned 53.5 percent of equities and mutual fund shares.

    The losses affected the wealthy at all levels, from those who own more than $1 million to those who have more than $25 million, according to the report.

    No. I am in mandatory quarantine in my country until March 31 ... And there are many possibilities that it will be extended for one more week :confused:

    No country or Health Care system is ready to handle this. I live in Spain , a country which a large number of elder people. More than 4.000 deaths and counting. Government decided to let it go for 2 weeks and the infection went out of control.
