Debate is intensifying over when it’s appropriate to open up states and lift coronavirus lockdown restrictions, and one group is advocating for the most extreme possible answer to the question.

A small but not insignificant group of activists, scientists and business leaders are pushing for the United States to adopt a “ZeroCovid” approach to fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. ZeroCovid advocates say authorities should enforce strict lockdown measures and distancing requirements from now until there isn’t a single COVID-19 case in the entire country, thereby achieving a “zero COVID-19” outcome.
