well, they gave some deep.thought to this.

If you arrive from spain or Italy, you will automatically be quarantined for 14 days.

one problem?

How do you get home, especially if you live outside Santiago and the central region? seems the government has no plan for that.

so 23 cases, doubling about once a week, puts us at about 1500 cases and change in about 6 weeks.

From pretty much every country seen so far, when you pass about 1000 cases that cat is out of the bag. You have untraceable community spread.

I had a thought. I wonder if anyone has run models on what happens if a country does short, quick shutdowns, early in an epidemic.

It obviously won't stop it, but it might slow it down.

rather than do as in itialy the whole country indefinitely when it is too late, shoot for disruptions to the early transmission chain, while also disrupting less the national economy and society. more like sporadic holidays of a week or whatever.

I might go do some homework on that.

I am thinking you will not stop the spread, but you might slow it to a point that the medical system can digest the patients in bite size chunks; thus, also reducing the death rate as critical patients are not dealt with in an overwhelmed medical system.

It might also take the sting out of the economy. economies absorb unscheduled holidays for all kinds of reasons (e.g. winning the world cup, the super bowl, etc).

President Alberto Fernández's government has announced a two-week isolation period for people arriving from China, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Japan, South Korea and the United States.

"This is not voluntary, it's not a recommendation. If you don't comply you'll be committing a crime, which is putting the public health at risk," Fernández told the FM Delta radio station. "The person who complies with the 14-day quarantine is obliged to shut himself away at home alone."

Not sure how that is going to work, but Gringos, careful about landing Argentina. You might be hanging around a while.
