London UK, has a scheme to house homeless in hotels

Would a second wave be worse?
When it comes to the severity of the second wave, Kwong said it depends on how well Canadians abide by the measures in place and if the country is able to flatten the curve.
Kwong said that with H1N1, countries that experienced a large first wave typically saw a smaller second one.
Conversely, countries that had smaller first waves “generally” experienced larger second waves, he explained.
“I think that may be the pattern we see depending on what happens here,” he said. “It’s kind of like you have a choice: either you have pain now or you like your pain later.
“You’re going to have pain, it’s just a question of when you get your pain.”
But, Kwong said, Canada is “nowhere close” to the peak of the virus because “not a lot of people have been infected.”
“I would say that we haven’t seen anything yet here,” he said. “I think this theoretical second wave, or whenever we relax these restrictions, it’s going to dwarf what we’re seeing now.”
I know you are right but I get to the point where it just becomes too much. You need to behave like you have an obsessive-compulsive disorder to manage all the risks.Yes, I've just been spritzing with alcohol and washing packages that are able to be washed, and washing hands after preparing foods/containers, basically assuming any of them could potentially be viable.
We need googles that can highlight the Virus like infra red thingys!
There's only two kinds of information coming out of China. Lies and propaganda. Hope the whole world retaliates properly on them for causing a worldwide catastrophe.
They can't just ditch the corona virus like they did their star swimmer Sun Yang, but they even held onto him for the longest they could beyond the point of comprehension. China will absolutely try their bestest to spin it to their side. Calling donations when they are actually selling stuff. Quite ridiculous.
The trend was first seen in China, where one analysis found a fatality rate of 2.8% in men compared with 1.7% in women.
Since then, the pattern has been mirrored in France, Germany, Iran, Italy, South Korea and Spain.
...there is a growing belief among experts that more fundamental biological factors are also at play.
