A More Effective Way to Flatten the COVID-19 Curve

We need to flatten the COVID-19 curve to improve our quality of life.

I am lucky to work with very smart people. I learn so much from them. My smart colleague, Karen Vail-Smith today, asked why we are doing what we are doing for the coronavirus? She says why don’t we use “Universal Precautions” like was done when HIV first appeared.

Testing doesn’t treat anyone, it just identify’s who has it.

Her recommendation:

  1. Act as if all are contagious. Use social distancing. If you have symptoms stay away from others and get treated. Use “Universal Precautions”.
  2. Use resources to treat people that are sick. Build more ventilators, pay more health care providers, and expand capacity to treat and care for the sick.
  3. Money time and effort are being wasted finding a better test because tests don’t treat and they are slow and imperfect.
  4. Focus on everybody doing what they should do to keep from getting infected and spend resources on treating and eradicating the problem.

Wouldn’t this be a more effective way to flatten the COVID-19 curve?

Engage in things that will increase your abilities and skills for the future while you are keeping yourself and others from being infected.

As always, be safe doing what you can to generate comprehensive improvements by creating pervasive, reciprocal, selfish, selfless, synergistic interactions so everyone you can safely interact with benefits.

Be selfish, selfless, & synergistic so everyone and everything benefits!
