A staged "re-opening" is the only way to go, so it's clear that the certain-coloured guy you mention has suppressed his vaunted instincts and listened to experts on this, but it has to be made clear to everyone that they should be prepared for entire cities to be locked down again with very short notice, if cases surge.

Be aware, though, that he's not the only national leader whose response has been, shall we say "sub-optimal" (or maybe "sub-par" would be more appropriate/biting), and he's not even the worst.

... But he's by far the most entertaining (which, curiously, appears to be one of his objectives).

Being a high-risk person, because of underlying lung problems (which don't affect me day-to-day, but would sure as sugar be best pals with covid-19), I'm wishing I lived in New Zealand or China.  Their leadership has been much more effective in saving lives.
