Japan Acted Like the Virus Had Gone. Now It’s Spread Everywhere. “Countries throughout the Asia-Pacific are experiencing second waves, many — like Hong Kong, Australia and Vietnam — after being standard bearers for virus containment the first time around. They’re providing a window into the future for places just emerging from their first outbreaks, or continuing to battle through them, like the U.S.”
Like every other pandemic in human history, it will spread until it burns out. I’m afraid that when China allowed international flights out of Wuhan to continue, the die was cast.
Also, this observation:
Nobody knows for sure how the virus situation will go but there are theories. You may be statistically correct in your risk taking yet individually still lose the bet.
