3. What we could be doing
The time to start acting is NOW.

The virus affects the lungs - decrease in lung function is life threatening, but can be treated through the use of oxygen concentrators. These are easy to use and can be used in a home setting.

Some patients could be treated at home or in designated centres. There would be no need for most of the staff working in such centres to be highly trained.  Many competent people are out of work. They could be redeployed.

There will be a big increase in demand for oxygen concentrators - need to expand supply chains and manufacture

Need for staff to engage in disinfection of premises and equipment

One group of people who would be of particular use is those who have recovered from infection.  Their immunity could be invaluable in many situations.
