Top priorities right now

(1) We all need to be doing rigorous social distancing to help flatten the curve (i.e., reduce the coming strain on our hospital systems).

(2) Numerous voices are now suggesting that the CDC gave us bad advice when they told us not to wear face masks — that in fact wearing cloth masks (not the hospital-grade masks, as those are needed by hospitals) is in fact a good idea.

(3) Major hotspots (e.g., NYC and New Orleans) urgently need more face masks, medical personnel, hospital rooms, and, most importantly, ventilators.

(4) We need to do what we can now to prevent this virus from spreading into poorer countries (in which social distancing in cities might be nearly impossible and hospitals are already under-resourced), where it could have a death toll in the tens of millions.


Topics we're researching:

It’s becoming more clear that this could become an even worse crisis in large cities in third-world nations, as social distancing may be virtually impossible and hospitals are already badly under-resourced.

On the bright side, some analysts are suggesting that the mortality rate of COVID-19 may be significantly lower than generally believed, as a huge percentage of cases (e.g., those with mild symptoms) are not being tested and therefore not included in the denominator.
