Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston U. and GA Tech have created a COVID-19 Simulator. I just ran the numbers for TN. Keeping current intervention strategies for 16 weeks yields 372 deaths by Aug. 31. Going into lockdown reduces that number to 277, but going to 16 weeks of minimal restrictions yields approx. 27,000 Tennessee deaths. Let's keep that in mind when folks glibly talk about reduced restrictions.

I urge everyone to familiarize themselves with the various protocols different nations are using, particularly Sweden. We are following Swedish Protocol in Knoxville to increase hospital margins and lower the payment of unemployment benefits. In Knox County, it's about money, not public health. Wash your hands!
