It looks like I can still reply even though this is closed – apologies if that is frowned upon. I think (based on following his twitter for a few months) that what he meant by “over by August” is that either: 1. We would be following in the footsteps of other countries that have handled it (New Zealand, Vietnam, Hong Kong) and hit upon the steps needed to resume mostly normal life (with him advocating for masks and quarantine). OR 2. We would have given up entirely and moved on to worrying about other things (which seems a lot less implausible to me than it did a few months ago…) and settled in for a big burn I think he is going to end up being wrong – schools around these parts are already talking about alternating days and other mitigation measures, but the thought behind it seemed somewhat legitimate. As a sidenote, @Polimath has been a really interesting twitter follow as someone who is diving into the data and trying to understand what is going on in different places. I can see where you are coming from here: https://mobile.twitter.com/jonst0kes/status/1276927181533388800 But I also think his point is somewhat legitimate – we know a LOT more now than we did in March, and are baseline testing capacity is much higher. To your point, if we just squander all those advantages it doesn’t matter anyway, and a high rate of baseline spread is going to be worse regardless. Anyway, that’s enough of me trying to police how you do twitter for a day. Love what you guys are doing here 🙂
