The Coronavirus Challenge

The Coronavirus (or Covid-19) arrived on our doorstep early this year without an instruction manual. Looking around, we found two tools: The example of a societal lockdown in China (but without any medical details, infection or death rate data), and a computer-model of the Imperial College in London projecting over 2 million US deaths...
