Who's bringing a kid under 10 to his 60 year old grandmother?  the 32 year old daughter.  She'd better be careful not to pass covid to her mother as she delivers her kids.  Has the kids' mother been careful sith the clothing she dressed her kid in?  What about the gift of chocolates they bring? etc.
Basically, I think it's great for the grandparents to get the visit, but it has to be done carefully, thoughtfully, for it to be done safely.
Why wouldn't she be? How many DDFers have posted about the precautions they take before bringing things into their houses?

Wiping down groceries that get left at your door and dealing with a grandchild? Yea, exactly the same thing.

Just got news of a certain young person who tested positive for COVID-19 before Purim. Has been asymptomatic for quite a while (since before Pesach) and just tested positive again (asymptomatic).
All these stories are only relevant if they tested negetive (preferably twice) and then tested positive again. We know a lot of people being positive for a long time. My sister was positive right after purim and still tested positive this week. Asymptomatic now.

AFAIK not a single country mandated by law, that grandmothers must allow their grandchildren to visit and hug them.

I personally know of no people who tested twice and were negative after a positive. I now know of 7 who tested positive a month later.
My wife who tested positive 3 weeks and was on a ventilator until a week ago and is still in the hospital tested negative today

I've been waiting for a study like this, I thought it would reveal our count was higher than reality but seems I had it backwards:
https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/04/21/world/coronavirus-missing-deaths.html

We've had many discussions on these threads about stay-at-home orders and whether they should be lifted. If this study has any degree of accuracy, can anyone justify reopening before a solid treatment protocol is in place? If on a limited basis, what does that look like?

But that can take a year, maybe even more....

So the only other explanation for these deaths is Covid19?
And lets assume for the sake of argument that all 46 thousand died from this virus, how much does that change the absolute case fatality rate, did you also account for the millions of people who aren't included in the denominator?
And what are you proposing, what is a "solid treatment protocol"?
