Don't know if you've see the sci fi face shields employees in some stores wear. They look to be a great way to stop both getting the virus and spreading it.
Probably aren't any studies on the effectiveness of the shields but that's the way to go.
These pieces should be number one manufacturing priority and every one in NY NJ area should have the chance to get one.
Citizens could not be forced to wear them when outside but the compliance rate would be very high with moral suasion taking care of those reluctant to wear them. Shiels could be distributed at entrances to large store and/or given out door to door, Would need about 25 million. The US can do that. The president could go on TV to explain to the nation the coming catastrophe if the virus is not checked. Then wait a few weeks and check the new infection numbers. If the numbers go down low have designated people in corporations check all employees every day for fever. If you have fever you can't come back for two weeks.
Certainly not business as usual but good chance to avoid a much bigger disaster than present.
Other areas of the country could put in a reduced form of this system Everyone constantly reminded to constantly wash hands with the warning ...your job requires you to do so,,, attached to the advisement.
Very good chance virus would be gone in two months..
Present practices ain't working in NY, N J and other urban areas. Without implementing this simple approach there will be turmoil probably without an end until a vaccine is developed. Work with it.
