“There’s no reopening without increased infections. Period,” said Andrew Noymer, an associate professor of public health at UC Irvine. “You want to reopen, there’s going to be more cases. I guarantee it.” … The next line of defense that will help economies reopen, Noymer said, is widespread testing to determine asymptomatic carriers, and contact tracing to find and quarantine people with whom they interacted.
