What will happen when the quarantine is ended to control coronavirus spread?

My great question at the moment is what will happen when all those measures to control coronavirus spread is lifted.
Are we going to go back to square one?
I think president Turmp has wakened to this fact.
He said "Cure can't be worse than the problem itself"
This is why I always felt that there should be an another strategy to control the epidemic.

I can't stay shut down unless dead. I need to go out to work to have food to put it in the belly. :bow:

There is extensive modelling.
Direct link to a paper from last week:

That's the sort of modelling governments are using to inform their decisions. At least, that's what mine is doing.

A key issue for most governments is whether their hospital system can cope. New York currently has more cases per person than Italy, and they are clearly struggling.

We are going into lockdown tomorrow, much earlier in the curve than Australia, Europe, or the US. Our isolation gives us options are hard to implement in many other places.

Thank you MIke.

I think we should have had a more strict home quarantine for people over 60.
There are many people over 60 are still in the workforce and active.
