The coronavirus infection rate is still too high. There will be a second wave

So where does this leave us over the next few months? With Re so close to 1.0 there are basically two options. First, we could try to accelerate the decline in the number of infected people – bringing Re down further – so that efficient test, trace and isolate measures combined with the quarantine of new arrivals might give us a chance of suppressing the virus to the point ofvirtual elimination, as has been done in South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand and perhaps China.
