      Coronavirus Response: Lockdowns Necessary, but Unsustainable

      The lockdowns were necessary. They were also unsustainable. Americans, so accustomed to freedom, were bound to chafe at being told what to do. Justified fear of coronavirus devastated the food and beverage, travel, hospitality, and entertainment sectors. The economic toll could persist just for so long before it became unbearable. Nor are public health, personal freedom, and economics the only competing values in this emergency. Spiritual life has been harmed.

      Harvard scientists say COVID-19 social distancing could last until 2022 | World Economic Forum

      The Coronavirus Economic Reopening Will Be Fragile, Partial and Slow

      The re-emergence over the coming weeks and months will be fitful, fragile and partial—and a bit dystopian, with frequent temperature checks, increased monitoring of employees and customers, and, potentially, blood tests to determine whether workers have likely immunity to the virus. Officials and business leaders predict that operations won’t fully return to normal until an effective vaccine hits the market, estimated at least a year away.

      Number of coronavirus deaths in New York flattens and hospitalizations fall, suggesting social distancing is working - MarketWatch

      With the number of COVID-19 deaths flat two straight days and new hospitalizations falling, New York is possibly entering the pandemic’s apex, said Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday. However, he stressed that New Yorkers need to practice better social distancing and extended the state’s lockdown until at least April 29. 

      “We get reckless, we change or are not compliant on social distancing, you will see those numbers go up again,” Cuomo said. “This virus has kicked our rear end; we underestimate this virus at our peril. Now is not the time to slack off on what we’re doing.”

      Loneliness endangers the body as well: how to stay connected with elderly loved ones | Society

      While isolation may protect older people in the coronavirus pandemic, it is exposing them to another, less understood challenge: loneliness. “L oneliness is not only a grave threat to individual welfare and public health but one of the most underappreciated risk factors for premature mortality,” says bioethicist and physician Jacob Appel. Along with smoking and obesity, loneliness ranks among what Appel calls the “triad of potentially preventable causes of early death”.

      An expert guide to social distancing – and what to do if friends and family aren't onboard | US news | The Guardian

      Officials around the world say that “social distancing” is the key to slowing the spread of coronavirus. But does that mean you can have friends over, and what do you do if you live with someone who’s throwing caution to the wind? We asked three experts for their thoughts.

      What are the safest ways to socialize right now?
      Dr Thomas Chin-Chia Tsai: “Avoid situations where there are crowds. That doesn’t mean that people have to go into self-isolation, unless they have actual symptoms and need to self-quarantine. It’s OK to go for a walk outside. You can still get takeout from restaurants. If you’re asymptomatic, you can still maintain your family relationships as you otherwise would – just avoid larger groups. It’s still just about decreasing the frequency of interactions.”

      Why is making friends as an adult so hard? |

      Making friends as an adult may seem harder than it used to be, but why? The honest answer: we can be set in our ways.
