[This article deals with an evolving situation with many unknowns. It was written by Norbert Gleicher, MD, on May 21, 2020 and published on May 22, 2020. For a list of all COVID-19 Bulletins, scroll to the bottom.]

Though much still remains to be leared about COVID-19, clarity is starting to break through the clouds on a number of important issues. We here do not intend to repeat in detail what media are reporting on a daily basis but want to, with bullet points, simply summarize some of the conclusions that are becoming increasingly obvious but are not always reported by the media.

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. Interested readers are also referred to CHR’s upcoming monthy newsletter for June, the CHR VOICE, where an article will address what it means “to follow science,” when combating the COVID-19 virus.
