Lessons from Singapore and Reopening The United States

“Singapore is knocking it out of the park in their approach to COVID-19 and they still had to succumb to lockdown.  The United States is no where near their game and we are already trying to reopen. We’ve got to scale up our response to this virus.  That’s the topic of this week’s Healthcare Triage.” Says Aaron Carroll, MD.  Singapore had one of the world’s most robust and effective responses to coronavirus and COVID19. Despite that, the country still had to enter lockdown and struggled to control the spread of the disease. What can this tell us about how the US has responded, and how and when American society can reopen?
