“It’s probably not going to be practical to contain a potential pandemic by merely trying to limit contact between people such as by travel restrictions, quarantine or even closing schools,” said Timothy Germann of Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.

He weont on to say, “But we find that these measures are useful in buying time to produce and distribute sufficient quantities of vaccine and antiviral drugs.”
