Yeah germany too.Indonesia is adopting the similar method (we are ven importing the test kits from there), so hopefully the virus will be more contained here
According to a leaked paper the lock-down will be uphold to prepare hospitals (as much as possible) and to build up testing till it reaches at least 200k/day (currently at ~500k/week). Probably for another 6 weeks, could be longer though.
Once that goal is reached and the infection rate is at a low point they'll start slowly opening things. But only in phases, like for example schools for 1-4th grade, a week later schools for 5-8th grade, followed by more and more shops, some restaurants etc.
Slowly and controlled, while putting individuals in quarantine like crazy, always prepared to roll everything back into total lockdown if things start getting out of control.
Problem is that a total lockdown can not be maintained till next year, when a vaccine should become available. That controlled isolation and exit strategy could be the reasonable thing to do. It is risky though and things could easily go very bad.
