If you look at the photos in today's TD, most of protesters were not wearing masks and were not socially distancing. Over 3500 new cases over the week end in Virginia.The problem is that not everyone is wearing masks. Not everyone is being sensible about this thing and not having big parties or gathering in large crowds. Yes, even with 100% mask usage and no large crowds, the virus would still be here, but it wouldn't have as many places to spread.
With all of that said, you're right -- it's not going away until there's a vaccine. I remain cautiously optimistic that one or more of the four vaccine candidates out there will be the one that slows this thing.
