This document presents simple, high-level, qualitative assessments of lockdown from
the perspective of seven policy priorities. It then presents an extremely simple way to
combine these assessments to arrive at an all-things-considered overall judgement
about the merits of a given lockdown level, or other bundle of measures.
The policy priorities we identify are interlinked: unemployment affects food security
which affects health, and so forth. This is not a defect of our approach, but a
reflection of reality.
