    This is an open question and cannot be answered yes / no / unclear. Please re-pose as a closed question like this ...: I think the word 'suppress' is ambiguous in this context so has the effect of an open question. Most diseases exist at a level that do not create infection and need beyond the capacity of health systems.

    I think if we were to ask the question with respect to health system capacity it could be answered Yes/No perhaps
