We should be endeavoring to ease the burden on the health care system, right?

We need consult actuaries/data to learn what extraneous activities put one at higher than normal risk of hospitalization, say a standard deviation above the mean, and everyone should stop doing those things, whatever they are.

We know COVID patients will need beds, equipment, personnel, etc. We should avoid needing those resources for broken ankles from pogo-sticking or whatever.
