I am not sure what the citizens expect.  Personally, I have a daughter who normally lives in NYC and she was able to escape to SC last week.  she was not feeling well and got tested two days ago and has not gotten the results yet.  she is self quarantining, treating with rest and Tylenol.  Feeling weak and staying optimistic.  

So I am personally treating this as a bump in the road.  Business as normal, washing my hands more frequently esp. if I head out for a trip.  I showed properties yesterday and will visit with those clients today.  

I hope we will get some good news before the end of the week.  If the sick folks have stayed home, it will slow the rate of new infections.

Modifying the high and the low is "affecting" the curve or outcome trajectory

Exactly what it says - stay at or below the level of hospitals' capacity to service patients. That's what it's about; look at the graphs to visualize it.

Reminds me of how they used to grade a test so the ones that didn't study got a better grade!

I see it as...

Don't be selfish. Shelter in Place, don't hoard supplies, stay healthy, keep the load off our medical facilities and use some Golden Rule common sense.

It means they want to get in front of it quickly so the US curve does not look like China, Italy.  

The curve is data.  Less data (numbers) the curve flattens.

In this context, it means what you've said.  Taking measures to limit the peak of any chart to a pre-determined level.  In the stock market, it could be the "plunge protection team" injecting money into the market to flatten the downward curve to prevent major losses (as we've seen done in recent weeks by the Fed).

 

In sales it could be to flatten the demand to not exceed production, either through a decrease in marketing or an increase in price.

 

In this crisis, it's limiting exposure so that the healthcare system isn't over taxed.

So I would have to disagree that the cure is worse than the affliction as I value people's lives.

Also, unfortunately, death also results in a lot of costs for the families impacted on top of the grief.

If we had taken the actions we did here in NY 1 week earlier, we would be in a much better position.  The numbers are pretty clear.

The data curve represents incidents; we want to lessen the number of incidents (COVID-19 diagnoses) to bring the outbreak to a more manageable patient number, lessening the number of deaths as well.
