No. The plan they changed when it became clear that it wasn't just the old or at-risk who would need hospital care.

It would have worked in the sense that herd immunity is a real thing, but it would have recreated the situation in Italy and caused mass deaths.

Afaik threads with over 500 pages can cause integer calculation failures to the database or some other unspoken horrors. Only our goddess [violet] knows.

How about no? I've had some...unpleasant experiences relating to that matter.

But I digress; as of March 21st, 1600 PHT/0400 EDT, PH has 307 cases, 13 recoveries, and 19 deaths.

Also, 168 cases in Metro Manila alone?! Fuck me sideways...
