  • It should be understood that the above posted graphs might look promising but they only hold true as far as lockdown remains in place. 2 weeks after It is lifted, cases will skyrocket, hospitals would be overrun and all those models that our Government is using will be thrown out. The death rates become exponential once the hospitals run out of space and even in this current lockdown scenario, our medical professionals are telling us that there is limited space available.

    Furthermore, the big uptick that we observed in the last few weeks coincided with the 14 day incubation period after opening of CONSTRUCTION industry. Our economy is plummeting. We have a choice to make, death via hunger or COVID-19? Which of those two things can we control?
