Coronavirus outbrake impact on PINE64
Well probably it should.  We need a" lockdown" (I don't like that word) for about a month more at least and we should see the new case rate start leveling off.

Found an interesting website in an article in AP news:  It tries to match scientists with specific skills against specific needs, but also has some guidelines and FAQs.  Started by a neuroscientist in Cambridge, MA, US.

Quote:The fastest and the only way to stop COVID-19 in the United States is a five-week national lockdown.

In much of Europe and North America, the explosive growth of COVID-19 means that a 4-6 week strong lockdown is necessary to stop the outbreak. Such lockdowns may be politically difficult to implement, and they always entail significant short-term economic and social costs. But their effects are dramatic, and their duration is short. Two months after China imposed its lockdown, China has virtually eliminated local transmission of COVID-19. Wuhan is now safer than London or New York, and China’s economy is on the path to recovery. Without China’s strict lockdown, the economic harm to China from COVID-19 would have been orders of magnitude greater.

During a strong lockdown, regions which are less affected by the virus can help provide resources to those in need. The lockdown also gives time to dramatically scale up the supply of COVID-19 test kits and capacity to process them. If the number of infections is dramatically reduced using the lockdown and a massive testing regime is initiated, COVID-19 can be controlled after five weeks without extreme social distancing measures. A strong lockdown would minimize both the harm to individuals, as well as the economy.

Looks like it's starting to level off, that could change.
