I just don't see how things go back to normal any time soon. Think about it this way. When the virus exploded in China we were in a sort of perfect social distancing stance. It was over there and we were over here, separated by an ocean. We didn't have a single infection in the entire country. Until we did. That was January 15 -- a single infection. Now 10 weeks later we have 450,000 infections and our people are dying at a clip of 2,000 per day. And that's despite our nationwide response that started in earnest a month ago. So what is the end game here? We social distance until infections go down, and then what? We go back to work? Okay. So it took 10 weeks for the numbers to go from 1 to 450k; how long is it going to take to spike right back up if we start with 10, 15, 50k infected? It's essentially like a "do-over," but we start the game at a huge disadvantage, and with people already tired of social distancing. So what is the answer? Herd immunity won't work unless we've massively underestimated the number of asymptomatic infections (which doesn't seem likely). We're not going to have a vaccine until 2021 at the earliest, so that's out. Antiviral treatments aren't effective. Do we just hope that the virus just dies out on its own?
