    I think the chances of another "stay-at-home" order like we saw in late March is pretty slim. It's partly political for sure, but it's also practical. The economy would have a difficult time...

    Great news!

    This is both good and bad as people will politicize Denmark's story to meet their narrative. I do believe that behavior or "civic mindedness" plays a large factor. But at the same...
