The 3 types of COVID19 interventions
And how to tease them apart
When it comes to COVID19, there are 3 broad categories of things we did/ are doing in response:
1. Things that lower your risk of severe illness, death, hospitalization
2. Things that delay the time until you encounter/ contract the virus
3. Things that do not even delay the time to encounter the virus (aka things that don’t work aka Pandemic Theater).
