We need to move away from CASE numbers being an important metric. If you have 1000 cases with zero disease, it won’t matter.

Just like the common cold / flu - if you tested the community, there would be thousands per week being infected, but very few of those need medical attention. The same will become true for COVID.
Well if that proves to be correct it will be a good result.
The trouble with what scomo said is that nobody (himself included) really knows what he is trying to say.
He is more interested in photo opportunities & talking about 'Jenny & I'
