Much has been made of Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and their results in this pandemic.
If we had followed their strategy and admitting our error in testing, we could have done something different.
If we had isolated and locked down
- New York
- New Jersey
On January 1st, we could have eliminated 90% (your number) of 75% of the deaths and all of the hospital overload.
NYC is always going to be a problem. So next time there is a hint of a viral respiratory epidemic anywhere in the world and even if we don’t have testing, tracking, etc. our first step should be to completely lock down New York City and surrounding areas.
This will allow us to keep the economy functioning, protect the hospital system and manage the numbers.
I think we can all agree to this.
