When the virus is here and the population has no immunity, no immunizations exist and no therapy possibilities, then a high percentage experts say, 60 to 70 percent of the population will be infected.The course of action has to be focused on not overburdening the health system, but the possibilities of the health system that have to be used to slow the spread of the virus.

The measure’s provisions, which could shift before the details of the bill are released, includes paid sick days for those who have had to be quarantined and paid sick leave for people out of work because they contracted the coronavirus. China did something like 200,000 tests per day. South Korea did about 15,000 tests per day. The United States has only done about 5,000 tests to date.
