We’re not going back to normal

MIT Technology Review:

But it won’t end there. As long as someone in the world has the virus, breakouts can and will keep recurring without stringent controls to contain them. In a report yesterday (pdf), researchers at Imperial College London proposed a way of doing this: impose more extreme social distancing measures every time admissions to intensive care units (ICUs) start to spike, and relax them each time admissions fall.

Even in the least restrictive of the Imperial College scenarios, we’re shut in more than half the time.

Ho boy. Tot pakweg eind 2021 gaan we een soort knipperlichtsamenleving tegemoet, vergelijkbaar met het smogalarm, waarbij we soms al eens wat meer mogen en soms al eens wat minder.
