“It is estimated that there is a real potential for a massive outbreak of the disease, which would have put an insurmountable strain on the health care system.”, the report states.

Based on the UK’s strategy, the daily number of infections will reach 275,793.
“Our findings give a clear warning that we are not yet ready to embrace ‘open’ strategies.”, as stated in the report.
Mathematicians caution that the study is based only on basic arithmetic calculations. More complex models are needed to better study the evolution of the epidemic, should restrictions imposed in China be lifted.
zero tolerance policy
China has a zero-tolerance policy towards COVID-19. Authorities focus on reducing local outbreaks.
The country’s strategy relies on frequent mandatory mass testing to identify positive cases every time an infection is discovered in a new area South China Morning Newspaper.
