Earlier this week, people I’ve been talking to were hopeful we’d turned a bit of a corner, but general consensus of my conversations over last day w experts is we’re still not doing enough to avoid Lombardy-like scenarios in multiple cities. Seattle is expecting it.

My God. Lombardy has more than 10 million people. Equivalent to preventing anyone from entering or leaving New York.
