more illogical Corona regulations under consideration

This makes no sense, and as I have said before, I think that is why so many people don't bother following the rules. They don't make sense. There seems to be no logic employed and no connection to reality. That is besides for all the zigzagging in rules and changing them so frequently they become difficult to keep track of.

For example, until now, the most recent rules for shuls and general congregating together allows for 20 people indoors and 30 people outdoors. People/shuls/yeshivas use "capsules" to allow more people indoors and outdoors in the same area, taking into account that the capsule sort of turns the area into multiple areas rather than one area.

And now they are talking about allowing 1000 people in [large] shuls for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. In outdoor gatherings/minyanim, up to 500 would be allowed.

We are going from 20/30 to 1000/500? This makes no sense. If we can have 1000 on Rosh Hashana, why can't we have more than 20 today? 

And at the same time, they are talking about a possible full lockdown for the holidays, and if not a full lockdown, possibly a partial lockdown. So at the same time they are considering a full lockdown and opening up shuls to 1000 people at a time.

Does this seem logical or make any sense? If the virus is under control and we can open things up, why consider a full lockdown, and if we are still at significant risk that could require a lockdown, why consider opening up shuls and other indoor gatherings to so many more people? What happened to going from 20 to 50, or 100 - straight to 1000?
