4. My Understanding Is We Test To Find Those That Are Positive So We Can....

quarantine them so they don't spread the virus beyond themselves. Treat them is some way to minimize their suffering and nurse them back to health. Do contact tracing so we can also isolate those they came into contact with so they don't go out and infect others. Essentially - prevent the spread.

As was explained to me - we the people are the food for this virus. If we cut off the food of the virus (by isolating people with the virus and maintaining the stay-at-home orders - that we can starve the virus of it's food) and eventually beat it. Make it die off.

That's why it's so important to continue the stay-at-home orders and not re-open early. All that re-opening accomplishes is that we provide the virus with more food (us humans) and the virus will flourish again.
