Mortality

Antibodies and Viral Mutation

Risk Groups

Mitigation Strategies

Pregnancy and Reproduction

In summary, the reopening of the U.S. economy appears overdue. This does not mean unrestricted reopening and abandonment of all quarantine measures but “guided” reopening, almost unrestricted for low-risk individuals and increasingly restricted with increasing risk status.
