That's why we need to protect the most vulnerable people.
If age 45 and older is vulnerable, that is about 39% of the population.

Exactly how do you protect these people?
I don't know I'm not a governor and I'm not responsible for caring for any people in the endangered age group. But I definitely wouldn't send trumpvirus positive people to nursing homes like they did in NY and NJ.
Unless I wanted thousands of people to die.

Trump admin has spoken: Herd immunity, which was their unspoken policy all along. As the laughing-stock of the world, we will continue what we've been doing: POTUS encouraged super-spreading events, half-hearted, unenforced attempts at social distancing, minimal mask usage. ...
As I predicted in my post of Jul 08
And I'm pretty sure this will be the Trumpian battle-cry for the fall -- that the contagion was "inevitable" and the mask-wearing and social-distancing was a waste of time and a Leftist hoax as Dear Leader told us.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

What do you think the answer is?
Can you provide an answer that doesn't greatly increase poverty and malnutrition among the least effected?

New Zealand, Japan, Germany, Iceland and Taiwan all seem to have done very well on both. Maybe we can learn something.

Or maybe not.

Also, what doesn't work.

If Europe is doing everything right then why are some of their infection rates way higher than the US?
Oh and what's bidens plan to fight the virus?

New Zealand, South Korea, Taiwan aren't in Europe and have done pretty well in keeping COVID-19 under control. Sort by (COVID-19) deaths per 1 million population at https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/.

Things are looking bleak again in parts of Europe (e.g. UK, Spain and France). Germany has lots of cases but their death rate per million population is relatively low vs. the US at 117 vs. 674 in the US.

At end of July 2020, Hong Kong:
Hong Kong faces large-scale outbreak that may lead to a ‘collapse’ of its hospital system, Carrie Lam says

Hong Kong is facing a new wave of Covid-19 infections that can overwhelm the city’s health care system and cost lives, chief executive Carrie Lam has warned.

She urged people to stay at home as far as possible and follow strict social distancing measures. The city on Tuesday said it was investigating 106 additional cases of infection, bringing Hong Kong’s total number of confirmed cases to at least 2,884.

“We are on the verge of a large-scale community outbreak, which may lead to a collapse of our hospital system and cost lives, especially of the elderly,” Lam said in a statement.
HK has 14 deaths per million population. They have about 7.5 million people. Meanwhile Florida with about 21 million people per https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/ has 737 deaths per million population. Yesterday, they had 3449 new COVID-19 cases.

I wasn't taking about deaths. The deaths are low because the infection rate was low because of the east Germany style lockdowns, they have been off lockdown for a while now and it's been spiking way up lately.
Problem with lockdowns is for most people the lockdowns are far worse than the disease.
I'm having trouble finding Hong Kong on a map of europe...

"Europe"? Confusing the Germans and the Italians would likely not make friends of either.
