Flattening the Coronavirus Curve
The more we slow down the spread of the virus by properly washing our hands, self-isolating when we're sick, and by physically distancing (avoiding in-person gatherings and physical contact with other people when possible), the less likely we are to overwhelm our hospitals and healthcare system.
The image below shows how collective community actions like those mentioned above, can keep the daily number of coronavirus cases at a manageable level for medical providers and healthcare workers.
Together, we can slow the spread of this virus, so we don't overload our hospitals and save lives.
