In my original post under this title, I may have been guilty of contributing to the “Epidemic of Armchair Epidemiology” described in the article linked below.

I’m posting the following links with a caveat: it’s opinion, it’s the author’s viewpoint. Although it appears that the author has done his homework, the article was published in Medium, which is an open forum not subject to editorial scrutiny and vetting. It’s not peer-reviewed science and may not stand up to rigorous scrutiny. When you open the article you will see this statement: “Anyone can publish on Medium per our Policies, but we don’t fact-check every story. For more info about the coronavirus, see cdc.gov.”
Also, note that the author is making a pitch for a strategy. Such advocacy is often not objective, and probably chooses facts and figures that make the case. Ask yourself, “What’s missing?”
I think these articles are worthwhile because they approach the Covid-19 problem with strategic analytical thinking and represent a useful prompt for further thought and discussion if not “the answer.” If you click on the author’s name, you will see his credentials plus an extensive list of people who he asserts endorse his view … or at least have made reference to it somehow.
