Due to the lack of vaccines and effective drugs to treat the severe cases of Covid-19, the corona pandemic is being fought worldwide through social isolation with the aim of breaking the chain of infection. This is associated with far-reaching restrictions on economic and social life with massive consequences that cannot be sustained permanently.
A real resolution of the crisis can be expected once a vaccine is available, which may not be available until 2022. Until then, it will be necessary to combine measures to break the chain of infection with regulated economic activity in a flexible system.
