I know everyone is focused on the US but it is interesting to see the different strategies by countries all over the world. Here is a website that shows the infection trends for a lot of countries. They are placed into buckets depending on how well they are containing the outbreak. https://www.endcoronavirus.org/countries Some countries like South Korea are trying to essentially eliminate the virus (with aggressive testing/tracing instead of lock downs). China started with extreme lock downs which were eventually lifted (but they shut down restaurants and bars in Wuhan as soon as a few cases were identified and now they are testing the entire population in Wuhan). Germany is reopening after reducing new infections quite a bit (to R 1.0). Sweden never had a full lock down because they want to achieve herd immunity. In the USA, some states are reopening and some are still under stay at home orders. But a lot of states are reopening without seeing a significant drop in cases. It is definitely riskier and more in line with Sweden than S. Korea or even Germany. So the USA is definitely on the "herd immunity" strategy. Let's see if it works.
