"If you are EXTREMELY LUCKY, you may be able to contain Coronavirus" (my parent!)

Professor Gabriel Leung, who led the the fight against the SARS virus, stated , "Throw everything you have at the Coronavirus quickly and hard and that will buy you some time. If you are extremely lucky, you may be able to contain it." 

There is less chance for anyone over 65.  My parent is over 65, and I care for them.  I am not sure I will be able to comply with EVV, and they will end up in an institution.  Please don't make them go to an institution where they have a greater chance of dying.  Please throw exempting live ins at the Coronavirus!
