Coronavirus Work-life

Do you think China has completely avoided the pandemic at this point or could more cases be rising now that their quarantine is over?

And there's no way they're telling the truth on their numbers... no way.

@BKD I’m sure that’s a huge part of it. Of course they knew how lethal SARS could be which would have helped, but I’d bet most people in China were more scared of the police than the virus. I think they’re lying about total deaths though.

They booted our journalists from their country. Don’t believe anything that regime says.

Time will tell. Additional spikes are absolutely a possibility and the biggest risk in releasing restrictions too early.

When you make the virus you can take it away. China is fully open for business.

I thought the Chinese government just started to only slightly ease quarantine restrictions. I seriously doubt people have completely returned to normal life in China.

It’s far too widespread to completely be able to get rid of it. I doubt they are completely back to normal, and they’ll probably be taking their temperature religiously, when cases are diagnosed everyone in contact will probably be quarantined. It simply isn’t possible to prevent a virus that is in nearby country from ever coming back. They’ll have new cases everyday, and I’m sure if it spikes back up too much, everyone will isolate again.

Depends on the city. Most of Wuhan is still in quarantine but some karaoke and bars open again in Shanghai 🤦🏻‍♀️

Do y’all think there is any benefit to obtaining “herd immunity” as quickly as possible then (minus the flattening the curve and minimizing hospital crowding first).

NO NO NO. By everyone getting infected at once, the hospitals get overwhelmed and the death rate is so much higher. After the first wave, there would be more people immune, so that will slow the spread of the second wave a little bit. Fewer thing would need to close, closures would be shorter etc. also, we you give it time, you have a better chance of finding treatments and a vaccine. More people die unnecessarily because of it.
