Flattening the Coronavirus Curve
NYTimes - One chart explains why slowing the spread of the infection is nearly as important as stopping it.
The ideal goal in fighting an epidemic or pandemic is to completely halt the spread. But merely slowing it — mitigation — is critical. This reduces the number of cases that are active at any given time, which in turn gives doctors, hospitals, police, schools and vaccine-manufacturers time to prepare and respond, without becoming overwhelmed.
