I agree it is still early to reopen everything, but wanted to point out that your analysis of the graphs is incorrect. The graph you show is for cumulative cases in Marion County. That's not the curve we are trying to bend. Once a person has been tested and confirmed with COVID-19 their number is added to the chart you posted. They can never "un-have" the virus and so that curve doesn't bend. The curve we are trying to bend (and it is related to the one posted) is the number of daily new cases. That data isn't available on the county level from Johns Hopkins as far as I can tell.
