Not that anyone will listen to this, but I feel the need to reiterate that containment always fails in a pandemic, due to the nature of a pandemic. This is, and I repeat for the slow-headed, NOT ANYONE's FAULT. That being said, there is something to be said for the model of illness-maintenance going forward that includes an element of making certain the populace is completely exposed to the virus, establishing herd immunity much more quickly and delaying unwanted mutation that could affect more lives. As most of us learned in school, mutation happens more quickly in a closed environment packed with too much density of population. But then again, I'm... not a Doctor. I really need to get a PhD so I will never again have to say that. I... have never been ambitious. I'm just a Doctor Who fan.
