Shane Chalke Interviews
EDITORIAL: Unlock demographically, not geographically
But making quarantine decisions based on geographical hotspots is missing the point, says Shane Chalke, a former editor and referee at the North American Actuarial Journal. Using publicly available data released by the Virginia Department of Health, Chalke calculated that active coronavirus cases in the commonwealth peaked statewide nearly three weeks after the April 10 national peak. COVID-19 cases in New York, the state hardest hit by the pandemic, are down 66 percent from their peak contagion period.
