Summary: Don’t re-open until your number of reported symptoms decreases for two weeks in a row. Don’t re-open until number of new confirmed infections decreases for two weeks in a row. Don’t re-open until hospital treatments can accommodate your current infection rate and you can test healthcare workers for anti-bodies.
This is a disaster waiting to happen.
As I mentioned other times, when you’re only plan for controlling the virus is isolation then removing that isolation will re-ignite the spread of the disease. Except now you have tens of thousands of carriers of the disease and what once took months to spread will now spread in weeks. Two weeks to be exact. That’s how long it takes between infection and hospitalization in most cases.
Lord, forgive them for they know not what they do.
The WH gives a long list of academic things-to-do but there is no practical approach to doing them. It reads like a list of goals. It is not a plan. You planners know what I’m talking about.
Protect the health and safety of workers in critical industries
Protect the health and safety of those living and working in high-risk facilities (e.g., senior care facilities)
Protect employees and users of mass transit
Advise citizens regarding protocols for social distancing and face coverings
Empty words. A sixth-grader can come up with a plan like that. More of the same, rinse, repeat.
And one item that irritates me is they use the wrong word throughout the document.
Sanitation is the hygienic disposal of waste. No one is talking about waste.
Sanitization is disinfection and sterilizing. This is what we are talking about. Sheesh.
Well, I am underwhelmed by the talent and capabilities of those who serve the WH.
