I've Read UNSCRIPTED
- Oct 16, 2014
14 days is being a misused figure for lots of things that aren’t applicable. 14 days is the number of days with a known or possible exposure that someone has to quarantine to see if they do become positive. It’s an alternative to lab tests. After 14 days if they have zero symptoms they resume life as normal.Saw this idea (on Twitter, but from a very smart person).
Why not let everyone <45yrs of age get back to work so the economy doesn't go to total crap. Let them run the percentage gauntlet and treat the bad cases, let the group build immunity. Then 14 days later release the next age group (45-55), etc. Seems like a decent compromise between total lockdown and the #notdying4wallstreet crowd. Would like to hear opinions on that one.
Also, someone earlier was asking about people literally being welded sealed into their homes in China. Here's a vid I found of such a practice in action.
The small white sign on the door supposedly says something to the effect of "infected person from Wuhan do not visit" or something like that.
if they do become positive, then it’s taking most people 4-5 weeks to clear the infection from that point. So you are looking 5+ weeks for almost everyone. Then you have unequal times of initial infection unless you inoculate (give it to people) intentionally. So it would takes many months per wave of people.
Also, the big crush is over 70. 70% of admissions in New York have been over 70 years old. So the thing that really overwhelms the system is this demographic. The < 70 year olds suffer because the 70+ age group completely overwhelms the system by themselves.
