ZFHB aims to get US back to work and protect Front-Line Medical and other Essential Workers
MOST FEASIBLE means to get folks to SAFELY return to work/play is Systematic, Large-Scale Antibody Testing
The US has no Return-to-Work Plan here is a plan that will save lives AND help COMPANIES and COLLEGES to not get sued for killing people: Here is a 3-page plan for a -- A Country Without a Plan --
This attached FAQ DOCUMENT outlines pro's and cons of: 1. Live Virus testing 2. Vaccines 3. Herd Immunity and 4. Visible Status Display Here is ALTERNATIVE version: FAQ DOCUMENT w/ ZOMBIES!
A niche beauty of AB testing, using the 2X-21 day rule, is this wrinkle: If you test negative Day1 and positive Day21, then you KNOW you are infectious and should stay home until Day42: at that point you are OK (we hope) AND you are now, in all likelihood immune: The 21-day rule CATCHES NASCENT INFECTIONS!
A Country with No Plan
We have no plan for complex reasons most notably: - uncertainty about best choices in face of covid biology & - conflicting needs: money vs. health - bad info on contact tracing, vaccines, live-virus tests herd immunity
The PROBLEM is people are confused about all these things. If you read our FAQs DOCUMENT you will know more than most.
Here is an inaugural update for this new COVID page at zfhindbrain.com
CONTACT TRACING: Good Stuff, but it CANNOT really protect us, at least not right now b/c INVISIBLE SPREAD!
If there were smallish numbers of infected folks in public, and the new APPs to help Contact Tracing, this might work well. Certainly we NEED Contact Tracing to complement whatever else we do, but there are BIG problems with CT.
ISSUES w/ CONTACT TRACING. First, given the invisible spread of COVID by the asymptomatic, there can in some instances be chains of 3 transmissions, each 2-weeks in duration, yield 6-weeks of spread BEFORE there is any HINT of an infection. Not only is the contact tracing 6-weeks too late, BUT all the folks infected in those 6-weeks have launched there own little epidemics some of which might not appear for another 6-weeks. If there were VERY few cases (like Ebola in the US) this might still be manageable, but if EVERYONE returns to the public square, and there are prolly tens of millions infected right now, this is NOT going to work.
