Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Public health: a strategy of 'search and destroy' involving mass testing, screening, separate health facilities/lodgings, tracing with lots of volunteers, somtimes uncomfortable surveillance methods, maybe taking shortcuts with vaccines etc.

Economically: Plug the gap from the bottom with helicopter money. The Danish approach of giving the whole economy a 3 month paid vacation seems more elegant than the multifangled relief efforts in the rest of Europe.

Something will have to give, otherwise it will turn into an economic and social catastrophe as well.

Schengen is toast!
