Mitigation vs Suppression- worth the read

Summary of the article: Strong coronavirus measures today should only last a few weeks, there shouldn’t be a big peak of infections afterwards, and it can all be done for a reasonable cost to society, saving millions of lives along the way. If we don’t take these measures, tens of millions will be infected, many will die, along with anybody else that requires intensive care, because the healthcare system will have collapsed.



Just thought I should share. Explains Herd Immunity and compares and contrasts countries responses to pandemic.

Edit:I thought I posted link but click on picture to read.

Pretty much every thread except your dads (RIP) is about the virus. I thought this is a different angle. Would like to hear your thoughts.

Great read. Thanks.
Its why states are going on lockdown like dominoes now. I'll take a 2-3 week off hammer shot if it means the citizenry and businesses can try to get back to normal easier and quicker.

I'm gonna miss all of the hysteria once it passes. I enjoy watching society lose its collective mind over toilet paper and hand sanitizer.
