We just got to Spring and towards Summer having already done the hard yards which, as far as I can tell, nobody in Europe or the Americas ever really did. Well, not to the extent necessary anyway.

Most European countries started opening up when they were still getting hundreds of cases per day. The USA never got below 23,000. That was simply an invitation to the Virus to go forth and multiply.
