Covid-19: The Great Fake Economy “Reopening”.

Covid-19: The Great Fake Economy “Reopening” and its Impact on our Collective Futures. Several economies, including Ontario, have decided on a “phased” Covid-19 rollout to reopen their economies.

Consider this. Northeast China ( right now is seeing another resurgence after they opened their economy and 100 million people are now subject to Covid-19 quarantine restrictions barely two weeks later.

White papers from the Imperial College of London ( and MIT ( suggest using “waves” of economic openings and then lockdowns to control the spread of the virus.

The Covid-19 models call for a one month open, two months closed cycle. The goal is to deliberately increase infections every couple of months, until a vaccine is developed, which could take years.

It would be prudent for governments to “reopen” their economies in cycles, over the next 18 months until Covid-19 herd immunization. With a 30-50% immunization success rate, a vaccine isn’t the solution.
