what if self-isolation is long term? 

@cwebber There are certain things proposed in that article that aren't compatible with certain democracies, like the US. Though I suppose that if such surveillance were driven by private companies and enough got on board, then it could still happen without government involvement.

But a government-issued certificate of immunity seems compatible.

It'll be all too easy to let fears erode civil liberties. But we also can't let civil liberties cause negligence. We're in for much debate.


@cwebber The article also doesn't seem to take into account increases in ICU capacity over time as we build out our healthcare infrastructure. It won't stay flat, as those graphs show.
