A MULTI-DISCIPLINARY EFFORT TO ELIMINATE COVID-19
EndCoronavirus is an international volunteer coalition that develops and promotes community-based solutions for policy-makers, businesses and individuals. Our guidelines and recommendations are based on research established by scientists from the New England Complex Systems Institute (NECSI), Harvard, UCLA, MIT and other leading institutions.
THIS IS HOW
With some basic actions, the curve can be crushed in only five weeks:
COVID-19: HOW TO WIN
CRUSH THE SPREAD WITH 9 MEASURES
COVID is a tough opponent: stealthy, deceptive, fast and cruel. Lockdowns are helpful but they aren’t enough. Currently, it looks like things will get worse before they get better, but we can win by anticipating it and going all out. Once we do, we can stop it in about 5 weeks. After difficult losses and with important lessons learned, we can return to a normal life. Here is how.
CALL TO ACTION
COVID-19 is a rapidly transmitting disease that evolves in a significant portion of confirmed cases to require extended hospitalizations and roughly 2-4% of confirmed cases result in death, with risks increasing rapidly for those over 50 years old. It can transmit even with mild symptoms (coughing, sneezing, or elevated temperature) and perhaps before symptoms appear. Reducing the likelihood of transmission requires everyone to reduce their likelihood of contact not only so they aren’t infected but also so that they don’t transmit the disease to others.
If everyone got tested for COVID-19, we could temporarily separate the infected from the uninfected. This would help reduce the spread of the virus and allow for societies to function normally. For these reasons, universal testing is our highest priority.
Aggressive and bold actions are required to reduce transmission by minimizing close-contact interaction in order to reduce vulnerability and risk for individuals, but also to “get ahead” of the outbreak so that it is stopped.
Everyone can help. Here are some steps you can take today:
Stay informed. Read our guidelines for minimizing spread at all levels, and share them widely.
