Oh, the grand old Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men;
He marched them up to the top of the hill,
And he marched them down again.
When they were up, they were up,
And when they were down, they were down,
And when they were only halfway up,
They were neither up nor down

Is it just simply to touch the brakes to prevent hospital overload or is it to definitively reduce the virus transmisson? I get it, there are significant conflicting considerations but what is the goal?
