Thinking "CheeseSteak" or Roast Pork sub from Tony Luke in Phila. Who now has a location in the Pentagon so it is closer.

Next year the tents will be needed to handle the overflow from the maternity wards.

Probably, but since I have the wife over here with me..... I'm still stuck on bacon, not to mention that still have a tricycle motor in the house from the last "vacation" we took.

Artificially setting a date to start up the economy without a vaccine, with the infected base at close to a million and still climbing.

Bad idea.

I feel there’s at least as much people who’s infected but not showing symptom. These people are now under wraps staying home, not allowed to spread the virus around.

What would happen if we let them go back into work place?

There are models out there suggesting 80% of the US population is going to get infected over the course of this (possibly years) no matter how you react. Quarantine, stay at home orders, social distancing, etc is all slowing down the curve in an effort to not over run the health care system. So far, no hospital has run out of ventilators or ICU beds. That includes NY City.

Letting certain portions of the population get back to work might not be the worst idea in the world for certain areas of the country. We should all be required to wear masks at work though. This virus could be around for a year or more, we can't stay at home for that entire period. You'd lose more lives to suicide and domestic violence than to the virus. And you'd still not have a vaccine at the end of that year.

I'm no fan of this administration, and Trump is doing his best to look like a fool during his press conferences (especially yesterday's), but there is nothing that has been done any worse than any other country in his response to the virus. They aren't doing anything better than any other country either.
But Trump is deferring to his health advisors, which is a good thing. I hope he continues to do so. Just wish he'd shut the hell up.

There are a couple of countries that have relaxed some of the restrictions and have seen cases start to rise again. WHO has a list of six requirements that must be in place to open any portion of a country. We have not achieved one of them anywhere. Trump is going to push and intimidate the experts to open as much of the country as he can. If the cases start to increase it will be the fault of the experts, World Heath Org., Governors or Mayors. We are fortunate that state officials are in charge of when anything opens as they were the closings.

IMO, If Trump does not have a great economy and low unemployment for voters he has not much of anything even for his base. And, I think there is a better chance of one of us being elected president than the possibility of getting the virus under control and even a fair economy back by then.

Most likely 95% or more of the population will get this infection before vaccination or herd immunity is acquired (which for an easily transmitted disease like this would most likely require over 80% immune in the population). Like you said in the mean time health care capacity is the main concern. When the spreading goes linear instead of exponential giving some slack to portions of people would be more beneficial to the outcome. Still high risk people with immune deficiency (also age related) or difficult underlying diseases should be isolated for their own good. And this is just the medical point. There might come time when we have to consider if the economical problems overcome the downsides of the disease. We can't shut down the world forever.

We all need to get back to work and soon. The effects of the global shut down will be felt for years to come even if we all started back tomorrow. I need to get back to work to provide for my family.

Quarantine is when you restrict the movement of sick people, tyranny is when you restrict the movement of healthy people.

I wonder when and how this restart of the economy will be implemented and what proof of immunity will be needed or enforced. All I can say is I already have my immunity passport or quantum dot tattoo.
