    Solution that may stop the COVID-19 spread in the U.S.

    The U.S. should do one of two things to avoid the ongoing coronavirus epidemic, which is currently spreading at a pace of about 60,000 new cases every day.  Whether it can absolutely lock everyone down — or it can continually check people out. The lockdown strategy works because if infected people aren’t able to get close to non-infected people, the transmission chain is broken even though we don’t know who is actually infected. The research strategy works as it helps us to classify infected individuals and separate them from uninfected individuals without causing anyone else to stay home.However, the problem with lockdowns is that Americans have zero appetite for even targeted, localized sequels after having endured a big national this spring — and suffering the economic fallout with little to show for it.That leaves it to the test. The latest data, unfortunately, shows that testing is falling across much of the USA. According to Johns Hopkins University, over the past week in 30 states — more than half the country — the average number of COVID-19 tests per 1,000 people is down. Nationally, the total number of daily tests […] More
