"I know most of you, at SpaceX especially, know it as Capsule 206," Hurley said over a space-to-ground video link a few hours after launch.

Fourteen-day isolation periods are not necessary to defeat the coronavirus and a second wave of infections can be avoided, Germany’s leading government scientist said on Friday. With what is now known about the virus, it is possible to contain further outbreaks, claimed Prof Christian Drosten, chief advisor to Angela Merkel’s government on the crisis. One week’s isolation is enough to prevent the spread of infection, rather than the 14 days currently recommended by the UK and elsewhere, he said. “In the beginning, of course, we needed the whole wide range of measures because we didn't know exactly what would help. Now we know the virus better, we know better how it spreads,” Prof Drosten said in an interview with Germany’s Spiegel magazine. “The incubation period and the time in which you are contagious are all much shorter than originally thought.” There is still no sign of a second wave in Germany almost six weeks after the country began lifting its lockdown, and Prof Drosten said it may be possible to avoid one completely. “There is a theoretical possibility that we can get through without a second wave,” he said. The way the virus is spread by relatively few people — the so-called “superspreaders” — means it is easier to control than initially feared, he explained.
