When will it end? It seems like May or June. But that is a massively long time. When we discuss the idea of flattening the curve, it is not merely about keeping the hospitals from overcrowding. It is about delaying the sickness for as long as possible so that when people do inevitably get this sickness, there will hopefully be some treatment or perhaps even a cure.
What about the second wave? Will there be a worse round two? This is a scary thought. Thank God, it seems like there will not be a second wave. But we’re not sure. Let’s keep our eyes on China. What it seems like the main issue is the number of doctors, nurses, and health care professionals.
The number of people that will need ICU may very well be in the millions, and the United States does not have that capacity. It’s time to pray and stay home!
