Could COVID-19 Be...Everywhere?
Friends, new research out of California indicates that the percentage of the population that's been exposed to the coronavirus may be much higher than previously thought. That's both good news and bad news. It's good news, because it means that the virus is far less deadly, in terms of its death rate, than has been reported to date. It's bad news, because it means a much higher percentage of virus-carriers must be asymptomatic, and thus telling who has it and who doesn't, and containing it by sequestering those who do, is nearly impossible.
What does all this mean? Possibly, it means that President Trump's recent comment -- that we need to shift to a strategy of protecting the most vulnerable, rather than incarcerating everyone in their homes indefinitely -- may be correct. At least, it might be the most realistic way to fight the pandemic in the next few months.
What's your view?
