This is the most relevant question, I think. Opinions here (and elsewhere) are based on grossly incomplete data so they really hold no weight, not even my own. The most productive way of attacking this is to have a plan, regardless of which side your opinions fall on. Politics have muddied the waters and that's unfortunate...science does not rely on politics to come to conclusions, but people seem to parrot the conclusions that most fit their agenda...so, outside of all the rhetoric...what's the plan?
Social distancing is the plan and will have to be the plan going forward. As CTM states, however, this is going to be more difficult;t to maintain as time goes on. Many of us will comply, however, limiting the spread to some degree. So distancing compliance on the greatest level we can maintain will be a goal. We also (in the NY/NJ area anyway) have become acutely aware of washing hands, covering breath, wearing gloves and using sanitizer while taking care to avoid touching our mouths/eyes/nose. This newfound education and the resulting habits should go further to minimize infections. At-risk individuals will need to remain sequestered until a vaccine is available. Large venues that pack lots of people into enclosed spaces (stadiums, theaters, temples, churches) will remain shuttered until a vaccine is approved. People will have to use common sense (the scariest part I think). And at the first sign of a second wave...back to total shutdown. I think that's the most sensible plan, and it'll sting for sure, but the alternative will leave millions dead and I can't see that as "acceptable" losses.
