Hi, I understand we should shield for at least 12 weeks to protect ourselves and the system (so it can deal with the onslaught) and let the pandemic peter out. But what worries me is that the virus will not disappear and all who are at high risk of getting seriously ill now will still be at risk in 12 weeks time (at least). What I want to know is what then? We continue staying indoors / shielding until they discover the vaccine (estimate 12-18 months)? Or play Russian roulette with our lives (by then they should have enough beds and ventilators, but according to this document england.nhs.uk/coronavirus/... from NHS England "Mechanical ventilation is especially challenging and
many of the patients with severe CTD and vasculitis are poor ITU candidates so service needs to have strong prevention strategy".)? Any thoughts?
