IF you "Flatten the curve" but then reopen (lets say even 3 months later) the virus is still out and still spreading, you are just delaying?

Yes the whole point is to delay it and spread the virus out over a longer period of time. This immediately gives hospitals more available capacity to care for anyone who does get sick. In the longer run it also allows time for a vaccine to get finalized and stop any more people from getting sick in the first place.
