Default Reverse Quarantine

I made post earlier in this regard in the Pandemic-Thread, but feel that it desrvws it’s own discussion thread

Reverse Quarantine - DGD-100-A

* This concept is the same as a regular isolation except that it has multiple offsets of barrier with multiple intermediate zones between the Hot-Zone and the (Disease-)Free-Zone
Concept:

* Isolate the city/area from nonessential external commute

* Scan/Move the 1st isolation line from top of the city/area towards the bottom

** Move the line down as far as you can without passing over anyone with any symptoms

*** This would be the border between the Hot-Zone and the 1st Intermediate-Zone

*After say 14 days:

** Scan/Move the 1st isolation line further down the city/area towards the bottom

*** Move the line down as far as you can without passing over anyone with any symptoms

**** Move some infected people if you must to keep them below the 1st line

** Scan/Move the 2nd isolation line from top of the city/area towards the bottom

*** Move the line down to where you moved 1st isolation line 2 weeks earlier without passing over anyone with any symptoms

**** Move some newly-infected people if you must to keep them below the 2nd line

*After every 14 days repeat the process adding more offset lines if necessary

* This should eventually clear most of the area from the disease concentrating the Hot-Zone to the bottom of the area

* In practice the lines would be offsets of the city/area rather the straight lines entering from the top and would shrink their corresponding zones to medical containment facilities such as hospitals rather than bottom of the area

* Ideally you would concentrate as many resources as you have to a few cities/areas to liberate them from the disease before moving on to other cities/areas

* Once liberated the residents can move freely between the liberated zones

* Train and pay-well people who have recovered, to travel freely to all areas/zones to work as essential services personnel as these people are for the most part immune and non-transmitters of the disease

Thank you for any inputs and thoughts
