It flattened the curve….I get that. But if we are never gonna reopen, then what is the use?
As states reopen of course there are gonna be new cases. That was a given. Until we get a vaccine, or we reach “Herd Immunity” (which requires that people be exposed to this disease) then this is a natural consequence.
So what, exactly, was the plan? To keep everyone on lockdown until some indeterminate date in the future? (Nov 3 2020?) or simply until there is a vaccine ready for widespread distribution?
Or did the nations health authorities think there was gonna be some other result of allowing people to interact again?
I mean, the original “Lockdown” was supposed to “flatten the curve” and last for 2 or so weeks…..that morphed into 3 months….What was the plan for the future?
Were the preceding three months simply a waste of time and economic damage?
