The “Top health official Fauci: Coronavirus crisis could last 8 weeks” headline is somehwat misleading—because likely it’s longer than that

@thomasfuchs It could last 8 weeks. If they take appropriate action. Or it could take 52 weeks..?


@hugh @thomasfuchs the only way this lasts 8 weeks or less, is if it's goes horribly wrong. The faster this runs, the more people are going to die.

We *need* this to be slow, to avoid overwhelming healthcare systems. And so we need to be adopting strategies that we can sustain for a long time. We will be managing this situation for most of the year, if not longer.
