We're not out the woods yet though. There's some work to do in achieving a zero infected count.
If we manage to get out of this without a body attributed here I'll be stunned. It's all I can look forward to though and it must be the priority.
We have 600,000 asthmatics. How are they all going to react to this virus? We need an effective vaccine. There's so much road to go but right now we need to survive. That's it just survive.
That world we lived in 2 weeks ago is gone. The global economy is decimated. This isn't a 6 month thing and we climb out. We are in serious trouble for a long time.
We need to see what happens in Europe and North America over the next 3-4 weeks before we consider what the bottom looks like for wealthy nations it's all the wealthy nations that have the virus and were basically f**ked. This hasn't even touch poor developing nations yet, they haven't even started.
