What Can The World Learn From Multiple Countries That Flattened Their Curve, And Did Not Put Their Entire Country Into Lockdown Mode? South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong all flattened their Coronavirus curve –
What are the multiple ways to beat COVID-19? Other questions we could be asking are:
1. When will it be ‘safe’ to come out of quarantine?
2. Who gets to decide when we have ‘won’ the so called war against COVID-19?
3. What is the criteria that the ‘winning the war’ will be based on?
4. Is the ‘winning’ going to be temporary, with multiple waves of COVID-19 epidemics, multiple rounds of quarantine or is it just a one time economic ‘pain’ and then we ‘win’ forever and ever?
A difficult decision is to decide how real this scare is, if really is as bad as they reporting or is it all fear mongering for financial gain for the powers ar be? I have read some of the top off main media sites that have predicted the rampant spread of COVID-19. What we do know there are going to be death but the are going to be maybe fives times those that make it. And when you make, they say this wil impact your lungs for the years to come. So best not get it.
What I do know is the general population scared out of their wits on the one end and on the other denying it could happen to them. Remember the HIV/AIDS campaigns which have subsided however thousands are dying daily and no one cares to even hear about it.
In SA we are on lockdown but how seriously are we taking it to flatten the curve. Bad times, are they still coming. If what I read in the sites we follow for more reliable information, and yes they could be wrong, albeit less so, they predicting some bad numbers.
What is the difference between all of the countries that have successfully flattened their curves, and what SA is NOT doing?

MULTIPLE COUNTRIES AND CITIES FLATTENED THEIR CURVE, WITHOUT LOCKING DOWN ENTIRE THE ENTIRE CITY OR COUNTRY
Leadership consists of nothing but taking responsibility for everything that goes wrong and giving your subordinates credit for everything that goes well.Dwight D. Eisenhower
Taiwan flattened their curve as they “implemented a list of 124 action items, from school policies, to proactively seeking out cases, to public education”, but did not do a city or country lockdown.
Singapore flattened their curve with strict quarantine rules, and contact tracing, but did not do a city or country lockdown.
Hong Kong flattened their curve with quarantines, community response, and school closures, but did not do a city or country lockdown.
Japan flattened their curve with wearing masks, and a 30 person high tech pandemic response team, plus ‘cluster’ outbreak related testing of all contacts , but did not do a city or country lockdown.
South Korea flattened their curve with early and aggressive testing, quarantines and public education, but did not do a city or country lockdown.
Switzerland discards the total lockdown of its population; goes for mass testing and fast treatment… Watch and see what happens to their curve which has not flattened yet. https://uprootedpalestinians.wordpress.com/2020/03/27/why-france-is-hiding-a-cheap-and-tested-virus-cure/
Veneto governor Luca Zaia flattened the curve down to zero cases, with early and aggressive testing of everyone in his city, quarantines of infected individuals and public education, but this city did not do a lockdown.
This article goes more deeply into what Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea are doing to flatten their curves, compared to every other country where lockdowns with on end in sight, and no criteria for ‘winning the war’, seems to be the new ‘normal’.
Look what happened in the US with a stimulus package. The theory of holding everyone hostage until they agree to a 6 TRILLION dollar corporate welfare program, as being the ONLY way to address is a pandemic is not true, based on the positive results of the above countries and cities? What is going to happen in South Africa after 21 days, 42 days, 63 days? Let us see what is going to be approved in the coming weeks.
How long will people tolerate being in lockdown and voluntarily go along with the top down program that was implemented with no discussion, no debate and no analysis of best practices globally?
What is the goal that must be achieved, in order to release people from this voluntary prison sentence?
Will the goal of ‘winning’ the battle against an evil virus involve zero deaths, zero positive cases, and if so, for how long, and in what areas? Or is there no goal and the ‘war’ against the virus will continue forever, no matter what because it is feared so much?
Plagues and epidemics are nothing new in global history. Epidemics are fairly frequent, not rare. Here is a list of all epidemics globally. What happens to modern civilization if we lock down the entire world every time there is an epidemic?
THE CURRENT GLOBAL RESPONSE OF MOST COUNTRIES TO COVID-19 PANDEMIC IS COMPLETE LOCKDOWN AND SOCIAL DISTANCING, BUT WHAT IF THAT IS NOT THE BEST, MOST EFFICIENT, LEAST EXPENSIVE WAY TO DEAL WITH IT? WHY NOT ASK THIS QUESTION?
Dr. Fauci: You don’t make the timeline, the virus does VIDEO: https://youtu.be/xkyO1DTqoWQ 10 min
CNN Infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci explains to CNN’s Chris Cuomo the reality of crafting a timeline to reopen parts of the country amid the coronavirus pandemic
Chip Yost “The US response to its coronavirus outbreak this week will decide which way the crisis goes, experts say. The US coronavirus caseload is growing at a rate that mirrors Italy’s.
“We are only about 11 days behind Italy and generally on track to repeat what is unfortunately happening there,” Asaf Bitton, an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard University, wrote on Friday. Putting cities on lockdown has the potential to “flatten the curve,” or slow the spread of the coronavirus so as not to overwhelm the healthcare system. Social distancing needs to be the foundation of strict and wide-ranging containment measures, according to Bitton.”
DR FAUCI WARNS THAT CORONAVIRUS WILL COME BACK IN MULTIPLE ‘CYCLES’, BUT WILL SA BE READY FOR MULTIPLE EXTENDED LOCKDOWNS?
Fauci warns coronavirus can come back in cycles. The virus “very well might” become cyclical and experienced seasonally, Fauci said at the daily White House briefing on coronavirus. “We really need to be prepared for another cycle,” he added.via Fauci warns coronavirus can come back in cycles, US needs to prepare – Business Insider
Latest news posted in the New York Times, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, said he and other public health officials had urged Mr. Trump not to relax the guidelines too soon. Dr. Fauci — who in television appearances earlier in the day had offered the estimate of 200,000 dead — said Mr. Trump was affected by those predictions.
In response, President Trump retreated Sunday from his desire to relax coronavirus guidelines by Easter, announcing instead that all Americans must continue to avoid nonessential travel, going to work, eating at bars and restaurants, or gathering in groups of more than 10 for at least another month and perhaps until June.

WHY A CITY OR COUNTRYWIDE LOCKDOWN STRATEGY WILL NOT WORK LONG TERM
China accomplished what they did by shutting down all transportation, banning cars, and totally putting EVERYONE into quarantine for two months, or longer, in the Wuhan hotspot region. To accomplish what they did, SA would have to do the same thing, NATIONWIDE. No driving anywhere. No buses. No trains. No Travel. No one is allowed to leave home FOR 2 MONTHS, in the entire South Africa. Odds are that we will never go there, so we are talking about a virus that is allowed free reign to spread.
