That's right, the coronavirus could be completely gone in 5 days, sort of. Actually, it would take 3 short weeks. Compared to the 9+ months we have been dealing with this crap, 3 weeks is no time at all. But here is how I came up with the 5 day number. I was going by people who work 40 hours a week, 8 hours a day and get the weekends off. For another 8 hours during the workweek, they have free time. For another 8 hours during the work day they have 8 hours of sleep. Subtracting all of that only leaves 5 days of which nothing would be being done.
To be rid of the coronavirus completely in 3 weeks, the key is preparation. To my knowledge, preparing for a lockdown or shutdown is something that has never been done. Instead, things get bad enough and they get these things dropped in their lap. Obviously, that doesn't work. At least not for long. If people have time to prepare, I'm sure it would be a different story. Especially if you sell the idea of it being a patriotic duty. The only snag is that we have to get other countries on board with this plan. Otherwise, in the long run, it probably won't work. Vaccine or not.
Here is how to do it. There is likely to be another round of $1200 dollar stimulus checks. (I hope. But after so many months since the last one, it should be more) Start dishing them out as soon as possible. Tell people to use this money to buy everything they might possibly need to last them for 3 weeks. And NOT give the money to whoever they may owe money to. To avoid any shortages, they would have 4 to 6 weeks to buy everything they need for 3 weeks. Then have a REAL lockdown. Shut everything down except for the highly necessary things like hospitals, electric plants and sewage treatment plants. It might be necessary to keep a few stores open. For people to buy emergency things or things not planned for. Everything else would be closed. Any travel between cities would also be blocked. Except to those who work at the necessary places I mentioned.
To make all this economically doable, all rent or mortgage payments would be suspended for 3 weeks. As in making it FREE. Any heating gas, electric or cable bills would also be suspended for 3 weeks. It would basically be 3 weeks of socialism to get back to normal capitalism. Which because of the coronavirus hasn't been doing too well anyway. All of this would cost FAR less than what 9+ months of the coronavirus has already cost us. And will continue to do unless something constructive is done.
After having gotten the coronavirus, after 10 days you are no longer contagious. My plan would give 11 more days to make sure it is good and gone. Forever. Just think of it. After 3 weeks there would be no need for a coronavirus vaccine. There would probably no longer be any need for a flu vaccine. You wouldn't even have to look at a mask again. Teachers and children could safely go back to school. Restaurants and bars could pack in as many people as their places could hold. If this thread is posted, preferably in the general discussion category, I would like to hear what you think of my coronavirus smashing plan.
