In South Kirea, they tested everyone, and any positives resulted in tracing contacts and isolating those contacted people. Not 100% effective, but definitely flattened the curve. That might have worked early, but will not work now in my opinion. people truly should be self isolating and maintaining a physical distance barrier.
That might be an advantage of being in Nebraska. Here with so few cases because they jumped early with social distancing and closing schools, they have been able to trace all but three cases back to it's origin. At the present time the state only has three cases that are community spread and they can't be sure how this person got it. I believe they said 13 of Nebraska's 38 cases all trace back to the same person. 33 or 34 of our 38 cases are all in the same county. I think Nebraska's numbers show isolation and jumping on it early can make a difference. Washington, California, and New York didn't really have a chance to do that, and now for them it's probably too late.
I could see something that stops state to state travel, especially out of the hot zones being effective, but boy would people scream about it.
As for me I have a 35 day supply of beer, so I know I'm good for that long.
