It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over. The coronavirus contagion continues to slow, but it is not a straight line to zero. In the two weeks to 10 April, the daily growth in the total number of recorded cases globally had slowed linearly from about 12% to 6%. But over the past week that pace has lost just over one point (now below 5%). Unfortunately the decline towards 0% is likely to be asymptotic. And until the number of new cases falls to a very low level, it will be hard to ease the lockdowns measures. The risk indeed is that a second wave of infections would cause more deaths and force society back into severe lockdown.
