The greatest risc for spreading the disease is by people not aware of the fact that they have Covid-19. Since young people appear to be less effected by Covid-19, it is to be expected that especially young people will not have any symptoms. And it is also young people who often likes to be socially active, go parties and in generally enjoy interacting with other people at bars, fitness centers, and other such places which may act as hotspots for spreading Covid-19. But beacuse those people without any symptoms will have no incentive to get tested, then it appears to be a great risk connected with opening such places.
However, banning those places may cause stress for those who enjoy using them, and it may not prevent people from meeting other people. They may instead attempt to meet in private places or where they hope not to be noticed. So if the society opened up for those hotspots, then the society would have a great opportunity to come in control with the spread of Covid-19. Because it would then be possible to ensure that only those people whom have been tested negative for the last 7 days is permitted access to those places!
You may think that it is quite a lot to expect that the society should have the ressources to test everybody in just 7 days, but far less can actually do it. First of all, then it is not all in the society which needs to be tested every 7 days. The main issue is to get those which enjoyes being socially active tested. Let’s say that one out of 5 in the society has a great need to be socially active. Secondly, the opportunity of being socially active in one week within the last 4 weeks could probably also work just fine for most people. And in that case, then the society would only need to test 1 out of 140 people in the society to be able to test about all people whom enjoy being socially active (7x5x4=140) .
So if the society opened some of those hotspots for everybody who has been tested negative within the last 7 days, then it would give a great incentive for all those socially active people to get themself tested at regular basis. And THAT would most likely be a great benefit for the society!
Opening the society can therefore be used to fight Covid-19!
