Governments around the world are struggling to answer: What’s the bigger priority, saving lives or the economy? Lots of strong opinions on both sides and not lot a lot of agreement (yet). China-style lockdowns are hard for most leaders to swallow, as they result in gut-wrentching economic losses, mass job layoffs, and supply shortages. But keeping people at work or returning them too soon risks higher infection rates, likely overwhelming the health care system for *everyone*, likely resulting in a lot more avoidable deaths. No matter the path chosen, reducing the rate of spread of the pandemic is something that benefits everyone. In today’s video, Chris spends time highlighting a number of personal behaviors, treatment programs, and national policies that show promise on this front. We all have our part to play in that great call to slow covid-19 in its tracks as best we can.
