  1. My guess is that contact testing will require widespread testing. Anyone flagged as at risk via contact tracing to be required to self-quarantine until they can provide a test result showing that they are not infectious. Ideally, the person would take an at home test and submit the results but that could be open to tampering. A less ideal option would be that the person would go to a drive through, show an ID and be certified non-infectious.
  2. You are missing the great companies from 2029 ;)
  3. This doc offers a clear set of phases with the milestones that need to be hit on path to recovery: https://www.aei.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/National-Coronavirus-Response-a-Road-Map-to-Recovering.pdf In the US we're clearly in phase 1. Phase 2 is probably sometime in early May based on this model: https://covid19.healthdata.org/projections
  4. "another of the biggest factors in whether a virus becomes seasonally recurrent is whether it reaches a level of transmission that is pandemic (prevalent everywhere) and endemic (circulating constantly in local human populations)." This article discusses whether COVID19 will be endemic. Does that mean that drive through testing clinics, home testing kits, social distancing and travel restrictions would become part of everyday life until vaccine is in place across much of the US population as well as in many other parts of the world? https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/flu-comes-back-every-year-will-coronavirus/
