Hammer and the Dance – The Battle to Beat the Coronavirus

There are lots of articles being written about the coronavirus, but ‘Hammer and the Dance’ is particularly impressive.

It is a 25-minute read, is well researched, and the author’s views are supported by facts. It’s also an easy read, with data tables and chart visualisations. The data is changing daily, so it can’t be up-to-the-minute, but the substance of the arguments hold.

The article presents the strategic options available to governments, and the choices they need to make – do nothing, hammer, or dance.

The Irish Government and our medical experts are currently applying the hammer, and reading the story will help explain why it is the only real choice available. You can, therefore, see why the restrictions they are applying now are so important and why they need to involve all of us in the battle to beat the virus.

At Glance, we know how tourism businesses are being impacted now, but being closed is part of the necessary battle. We all take the pain, so this virus is defeated and we can begin to resume our lives and businesses again.
