But ISTM that even if we flatten the curve, we'll want to basically continue self-isolating to keep the curve relatively flat. No? if we flatten the curve, how long before we expect it to start going down? 6 months? A year? No one knows?

I find the various timetables somewhat confusing. I assume the thought is, we impose these lims for 2 weeks, or a month, or whatever, and then see where we stand and whether we need to continue them or ramp them up. But it sorta suggests that things will be "different" - if not better - in 2 weeks, or a month, or whatever.
I used to be disgusted.
Now I try to be amused.
