Known Unknowns: Known Knowns and COVID Mitigation
By Andrew Watson This article will review the evolution of our response to the COVID crisis. In particular the tools and strategies that are being put forward to assist in making spaces safe for habitation. In many cases there are shortcomings that are well documented, however we overlook these ‘Known Knowns’ in order to make ourselves feel better about doing ‘something’. In some of these cases a simple tweak might make a major improvement, in other cases we are just throwing good money after bad. In extreme cases we are being outright fraudulent and hoping some money can be made before somebody calls it out. In all cases, the work has been done and the knowledge is there that can allow us to make better choices that will make a difference.
