Lessons for Resilience

Consider a twin-track strategy of containment and shielding
Vulnerable people

This can help to prevent deaths and stop the number of cases accelerating as suppression measures are eased. The benefits of these measures are:

  1. Containment measures allow us to reduce suppression measures without the spread of the virus accelerating
  2. Shielding the vulnerable allows us to reduce the death toll of the virus even if the spread of the virus does accelerate. Older people and people with relevant health conditions would be protected

European countries are starting to ease, but containment and shielding capacity appears limited, risking acceleration of the virus. East Asia has advanced containment capacity and anticipate better testing and tracing capacity and widespread use of masks.
