Social distancing

More a question rather than an idea. I understand that 2m distancing plus good hygiene especially on your hands keeps one safe. So what extra safety is gained by keeping us in the house? I. E. Why not simply have a social distancing regime plus other assessed PPE without the lockdown? Has any assessment of the extra benefit of a lockdown versus extra mental health and death from other sources simply because of the lockdown been carried out?

Why the contribution is important

All the models I have seen on the media contrast doing nothing against lockdown. No analysis seems to be available for intermediate states and regimes.

    I am interested to see the comparative models but have to say that the social distancing measures do no always work. Many people do not follow it even now...with more relaxed rules there is less chance of them following it.
