Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The approach taken by China seems to have worked pretty well so far. If people start testing positive, lock everybody down.

Short term problem is this approach infringes individual freedom. Long term advantage is when a variant as transmissible as omicron but as deadly as ebola comes along, countries with strict lockdown procedures will survive while the "free" countries will lose half their population.
