    Default If Relaxed Too Soon, Physical Distancing Measures Might Have Been All For Naught

    If physical distancing measures in the United States are relaxed while there is still no COVID-19 vaccine or treatment and while personal protective equipment remains in short supply, the number of resulting infections could be about the same as if distancing had never been implemented to begin with, according to a UCLA-led team of mathematicians and scientists.

    We are still keeping physical distancing here in Western Australia, even though we have no deaths and no hospitalisations. Other than the border with Victoria remaining closed, other restrictions have been relaxed, and we are close to normal. Still being cautious, which I think is a good idea. These measures have cut down 'flu cases by around 98%, so I hope it keeps up all winter.

    What's going here on here is completely insane. When we relaxed restrictions and the number of cases began to climb, that should have been an indication to shut everything back down immediately… Resume quarantine, masking, social distancing, the whole entourage of preventive measures. It was astonishing to see the lack of leader ship. No action was taken, and now conditions are totally out of control. We might have had a chance had we reversed course immediately, but of course that didn't happen — and in fact many states are still ignoring precautions, businesses are open, cases are skyrocketing and no one is in charge. It's freaking chaos.

    Same here. This is a small island, and our Covid cases had been in the single digits for several months. Then the desire for dollars took over the Governor's senses. Tourists and refinery workers were permitted to fly in from some of the worst Covid "hot spots" on the mainland. Now there are Covid cases all over the place. Many government offices and businesses have been shut down due to so many Covid cases. Total insanity!
