"Re-opening" is magical thinking.

I just can’t fathom the “Numbers are back down, so we can go back to normal” argument, other than as either wishful thinking or a grave (literally) misunderstanding of how all this works. The numbers are only low because we stopped doing all the stuff people now want to start doing again.

And I am not sure I’m convinced by the “Yeah, but we know more about the virus now” response. I think a lot of people have read a few anecdotal Medium posts that say what they want to hear.
