    The Surge in San Francisco? - NOT YET

    San Francisco’s early restrictions seem to be helping hospitals avoid coronavirus overload — so far



    Infectious disease experts say that the region’s early steps, including ordering people to avoid crowds and shelter in place, may have slowed the trajectory of the virus. But experts say it remains critically important that residents continue to heed the advice of public health officials and stay home.


    San Francisco was among the very first to call for strict social distancing and stay at home measures.
    Are you better off than you were four years ago?

    A lot of smart people live there. That probably helped. They would take social isolating more seriously for example since they know science.

    The restrictions seem to helping in Seattle, too.

    Yes and many on the right slammed them for that move

    Far to many on the right that reject science when they do not like the results

    I'm hoping that these extreme restrictions do work. There is quite a bit of potential for harm here, and even if they can slow the roll of the virus, it may be enough to help alleviate the extreme strain on the healthcare infrastructure.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Lifting restrictions and they will be partial in many areas,will require mass, efficient and rapid testing to perform massive amounts of testing
    Clear areas - consider the sizes of NYC-Chicago-Miami -Seattle.

    During that confirm who has had the disease and recovered to those that still have not been infected

    This is not ending soon
